There Came a Wind (Wisconsin storm) by Phil~Koch. Green sky usually means perfect conditions for a tornado.

A rare cloud formation was caught by a satellite as it rolled across the Gulf of Mexico on April 27.    The formation is called an undular bore, or gravity wave train, and it appears as rarely as once a month. An undular bore is a disturbance in the Earth's atmosphere that can be seen as clouds move in waves. They normally occur within an area of the atmosphere that is stable in the low levels after a cold front moves through.
