Multicell thunderstorms are storms that have some organized structure, making their lifetime longer. Multicell storms consist of several cells of storms, which occur one after another: each cell has a lifetime of 30 to 40 minutes, typically. In severe multicell storms, there are usually several cells active at any one time. Lightning is a good indication of an active thunderstorm cell.
