LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –A longtime tradition that comes with St. Patrick’s Day is wearing green so you don’t get pinched, but that causes other problems with green screens.

As SkyWARN 7 meteorologist Zac Scott showed Thursday, they can’t wear green while working. Chroma key, often used with a green screen, replaces a specified color with other images or video. In our case, we replace the color green with weather images and radars.

It makes St. Patrick’s Day a little hard, but green socks will have to do.
