Lightning is a dangerous natural phenomenon. On average, it carries 100 million volts of electricity. However, lightning can be beneficial to us. We can know the atmospheric conditions and forecast the weather by looking at the colors of lightning. If white lightning strikes, there are no pollutants in the atmosphere, whereas blue lightning means there are some pollutants. Furthermore, purple lightning tells us that there will be a big thunderstorm along with heavy rain.
