A colorful sky as an electrical charged lightning bolt strikes near the road and green thunderstorm clouds above. When the sun is low in the sky, such as before sunset when most severe storms occur, the reddening light of the sun when shining through Earth’s atmosphere makes the bluish cloud tint turn green. Or it may be that storm clouds act as a kind of canvas upon which low sunlight scattered by particles in the air paints a greenish color. “The most popular theory is that thunderstorms contain a lot of water often in the form of hail and this water or ice tends to scatter green light during the strong updrafts that occur in severe storms. That’s why many people say the sky appears green right before a hailstorm.” says Brent McRoberts of Texas A&M University.
