    Skies do turn green in severe weather

    Nice shots, Lili. Over here, the skies going green like that often heralds horrid hailstorms.

    must be kinda regional...... very cool! When I see the skies turn yellow, I head to the basement....that means the tornados are coming.

    When I moved to Texas over 35 years ago, one of the first lessons was, "If the skies turns a greenish color at the horizon, start lookin for funnel clouds." Unfortunately, here along the coast, we don't have basements...

    Scary capture, Lili!

    thanks all, it was very scary, the base of the storm, see in the first image as the ragged grey 'skirt' at top center was showing rotation.
    NOT a good sign!

    Cloud formations, especially during heavy weather, are a favourite of mine. Great shots.
