Why does the sky turn green(ish) when heavy thunderstorms / tornadoes are imminent?

In: Physics

Grass is a another theory. Since I live in tornado alley (Oklahoma), I can say that it’s not the craziest thing to believe either. The winds can be brutal and it will pick up anything and everything it can. I’ve seen trampolines flung over fences, birds knocked out of the air, and a bunch of other crazy shit because of the wind alone. And that’s not even during a tornado. Those are worse. So with the grass being so light, it gets pretty high up there and there’s so much that it causes a green tint. Again, it’s just a theory but I think it’s definitely a high possibility.
