Meteorologists can't wear green

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.
