A lightning storm was a meteorological phenomenon characterized by a high amount of electrical activity.

When Wesley Crusher was testing himself in preparation for his psych test for the Starfleet Academy entrance requirements, he asked Worf's opinion as to what fears he could face. "Lightning storms" was one of the ideas Wesley thought of. (TNG: "Coming of Age")

After hearing Pavel Chekov describe an anomaly as a "lightning storm in space", James T. Kirk immediately recognized it as the same phenomenon that preceded Nero's earlier incursion which had killed his father. (Star Trek)

The phrase "lightning storm in space" was also used in the official description of "The Girl Who Made the Stars", to describe space weather seen in that short. Lightning-like phenomena in space were also seen in the region the USS Discovery found itself in "Calypso".
