Short summary
Detailed analyses of the 27-day solar rotational period in cloud and lightning activities may help in untangling the process of solar influence on weather and climate. We analyzed the lightning data in Japan for AD 1989–2015 and found that the 27-day solar rotational period is seen in wide-area lightning activity. The signal was stronger at the maxima of solar decadal cycles. It was also found that the signal of the 27-day period migrates from the southwest to the northeast in Japan.
