We’ve seen blue skies, grey skies, pink skies and orange skies. But have you ever seen the sky turn green? When you see these pictures, you’re going to think a Disney villain has made their entrance!
The skies surrounding South Dakota, United States, recently turned an odd green colour, causing confusion among the people there.
Fox Weather meteorologist Heather Brinkmann took to her Twitter account to showcase the abnormality while also sharing an explanation.
She wrote, “GOODNESS GREEN. This is a look at the sky in Sioux Falls (South Dakota) right now as severe storms push through from one of the DOT cams.”
According to Fox Weather, the green colouring is caused by light refraction within a storm that carries mass amounts of moisture.
“Water/ice particles in storm clouds with substantial depth and water content will primarily scatter blue light. When the reddish light scattered by the atmosphere illuminates the blue water/ice droplets in the clouds, they will appear to glow green,” shared the American National Weather Service (NWS).
This also indicates the presence of hail (which is rain in the form of small balls or lumps usually consisting of concentric layers of clear ice and compact snow).
The area is currently experiencing a derecho, which is a widespread, long-lived wind storm that is associated with a band of rapidly moving showers or thunderstorms and can produce destruction similar to the strength of tornadoes. We definitely do not want to be there when that happens.
We genuinely hope that the South Dakota residents stay safe throughout the storm.
