Is there a difference between heat lightning and sheet lightning?
No, these two kinds of lightning are really just regular lightning that lights up distant clouds. You don’t hear the accompanying thunder because the clouds are too far away. (The sound of thunder rarely carries more than 15 miles.) Heat or sheet lightning usually doesn’t bring rain immediately, but it indicates that unsettled weather is on the way.
