documented ( Ralph et al. 2006 , 2011 ; Neiman et al. 2008 , 2011 ). ARs have also been linked to extreme precipitation and flooding over western Europe ( Stohl et al. 2008 ; Lavers et al. 2011 ) and the eastern United States ( Moore et al. 2012 ). The penetration of ARs into interior western North America is less frequent, but can likewise produce heavy precipitation ( Lackmann et al. 1998 ; Rigby 1998 ; Bernhardt 2006 ; Neiman et al. 2013 , 2014 ; Rutz et al. 2014 ; Hughes et al. 2014

networks as the North American Lightning Detection Network (NALDN). We summarize the lightning characteristics for this portion of North America for 1998–2000, including an analysis of the time of maximum lightning activity over North America and surrounding waters. We believe that a number of unique lightning-related observations are now possible by the creation of this single homogeneous network covering nearly 20 million km 2 , over latitudes ranging from 25° to 67° in the west, and 25° to 55° in

upon the atmosphere. The influence of the MJO upon the various monsoons including the Australian ( Hendon and Liebmann 1990 ; Wheeler and McBride 2005 ), the Asian ( Yasunari 1979 ; Lau and Chan 1986 ; Goswami 2005 ), the North American ( Mo 2000 ; Higgins and Shi 2001 ), and the South American ( Jones and Carvalho 2002 ) is well documented. The relationship between the MJO and tropical cyclones (TCs) has also been investigated. Maloney and Shaman (2008) , Maloney and Hartmann (2000) , and
