Lightning bolts bracketed the metro area

Thunderstorms Monday afternoon rained down 107 lightning bolts on the metro area, the Instituto Meteorológico Nacional said.

The storms were spawned from another of those tropical waves that swept across the country. Rain was from 10 to 30 millimeters, from about four tenths of an inch to 1.2 inches.

The weather institute maintains its own sensing devices for lightning. The agency said that storms were expected to continue into the early evening along the Pacific.

The weather agency also said that there was a strong chance of more thunderstorms this morning in the northern zone and along the Caribbean coast.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center does not show any storm generating areas in the entire Atlantic.
