Yes. Lightning can strike up to 10 miles away from a storm. NOAA has some intersting facts on lightning here

Yes it is, lightning does not necessary comes with a rain. it is more towards the statics and the condition of the air presure.

It is always lightning first before the actual rain and at times without the rain.

yeah, I was watchin a documentary, and they said lightning actually strikes more when theres no rain, you just can’t see it or something. I don’t know if thats true, but it was a documentary

Can be—some places it’s more likely than others. Louisville, KY, is pretty well known for “bolts out of the blue”
