The cell life time was 3h 30 minutes. Radar cross-sections show a strong vertical development with cloud tops reaching an altitude of 13 km. During the first 3 h, in its mature stage, cloud-to-ground (CG) flash rates remained very low (under 1 min-1) with sometimes slightly dominant positive CG flashes. The maximum int...
