Lightning intefereance with walkie-talkie transmissions

I tried googling a few terms and came up with things that really didn't address (in simple terms) what I need to know.

I have two characters on a ship in the middle of the ocean. Each character has a walkie-talkie-type device on them to communicate. There is a storm going on with lightning. How much (if at all) would the lightning interfere with their transmissions? Would it only happen when bolts and thunder was being blasted through the air, or would there be continuous static or distortion on the line?

No other transmissions via radio are going on except between these two characters, BTW.
