Abstract
[1] Two thunderstorms which developed in the northeastern region of Spain on 17 August 2004 are analyzed. According to radar and ground observations, one of these storms produced large hail (larger than 19 mm) and therefore could be severe. Both thunderstorms exhibited strong vertical developments with cloud tops reaching 17.5 and 14 km for the severe and the nonsevere ones, respectively. The total lightning activity was monitored, thanks to the Spanish magnetic-direction-finding and time-of-arr...
