Lightning strikes can be viewed in a dedicated layer in MetX, called ”Lightning Data”. Click on Layer Stack , select ”Add Layer” and ”Lightning Data” in the ”Mode” section.
The layer does not have any related parameters, so just click ”Apply” which adds the layer to the Layer Stack. In the Layer Stack, the user can change the icon color, size as well as the opacity of the strikes. Note that lightning data is based on observations so is only available for times in the past.
