Don't really now except that we've seen that green-yellow sky and not had tornadoes. I do know that when you see a rockin' thunderstorm rolling along that then you get a clear patch of sun right in the middle, there is a good chance you'll be see a tornado. My retired grandfather taught me that one. We were wlking up the drive to his house when the rain stopped and the sun came out in the middle of the storm. You could see the hair raise up on the back of his neck and the old guy start moving very quickly toward the house. Found out later that the tornado went about a 1/4 mile south of us. Like IHank was saying in another post, there are lots of warning signs that accompany very severe weather if your listening to them.
