Description: The control of thunderstorms is a challenging objective in experimental meteorology. For the past five years it has been the long-range goal of Project Skyfire. The lightning storm season in western Montana, northern Idaho, eastern Oregon and Washington normally extends from June to September with the greatest storm intensity occurring in July and August. Over the past twenty year period approximately 70% of all fires occurring in the forests of the northwestern United States were caused by lightning.
