What the green sky means

If you look out your window, you may see the sky has a bit of a yellow or green tint to it. This is caused by the amount of water in the atmosphere. 

This is not indicative of a tornado being nearby.

As the thunderstorm pushed south and into Detroit, a flash flood warning was issued for all three counties - Macomb, Oakland, and Wayne Counties - until 12:45 a.m. on Sunday.

Additionally, severe Thunderstorm Warnings are also in place in Wayne and Washtenaw Counties until 9:30 p.m. on Saturday.
