Tornado weather

Tornado weather, 9 by 12 watercolor, 140# Fabriano Artistico
 Radar shows it coming. The forecasters'  maps plot the chances and arrivals. The sunny skies are unsettled, with southerly winds blowing clouds toward it. 
Tornado weather on the Great Plains, where you can sense them in the weather and humidity, and see it on Oklahoma's northwest horizons hours ahead of time.
Today's watercolor, green and dark blue on the horizon, windswept golden wheat bending toward it.
