Coriolis force: $$F_c=m v \wedge \omega$$ We need the velocity component perpendicular to the axis of rotation, which is $$v_c = v sin(\theta)$$ Now we integrate the acceleration twice with respect to time in order to get displacement: $$x = \int\left(\int{v sin(\theta)\omega dt}\right)$$ Noting that $$\theta = \frac{v.t}{R}$$ where $R$ = radius of ...

Water vapor is less dense than dry air. In a rotating system, moist air would be forced inward and dry air outward.

If you just want a "rough" idea of how far away the lightning struck, then the answer is yes. You can use the loudness of the thunder as an indicator of the relative distance (a loud strike will be closer than a faint strike). More accuracy could be be gained with a loudness measuring device calibrated with known average strength of strikes and how far ...
