What are Green Clouds?

Published On: Jul 22 2011 02:33:00 PM CDT

Green Clouds are often associated with severe weather.

They form when the clouds are illuminated by light reflected off green vegetation, such as large corn fields or a heavily wooded forest.

In the Great Plains region of the U.S. green clouds are associated with storms likely to produce tornadoes.
