I'm not well versed in the lower end stations (Oregon, acurite, etc) but I do believe the WeatherFlow station is the only thing even near that price range that detects lightning. However, it's supposed to retail for around 299 USD and it doesn't support data logging via usb or have a solar panel.

If it were me with that budget and "want" list, I'd try to find a lightly used Davis Vue with a USB data logger. You won't get lightning detection but it does include a solar panel and it's a solid station.
