Chase Partners:

Holly, MI


A line of severe thunderstorms tracked across the area around 7 pm EDT producing wind damage across southeast Michigan. Although the storms were not severe in my area they did produce a very photogenic shelf cloud and a bright orange sky once the storms passed off to the east. I know what they say about red skies...but what does an orange sky mean?
