Cantaloupe Plants turning bright green

We have had roughly a 2 week period of heavy rain at least for us in Atlanta. My Athena Cantaloupes plants were a dark green color before than. Now they are turning a bright yellowish green in color. Could this be caused by the extra rain stressing the plants? Any help would be most appreciated.


I swear its a brighter green color in person.

Both cold rainy weather and nitrogen deficiency cause that kind of color. They go together because rain leaches out the nitrogen in the soil. I'd apply a good dose of nitrogen and try to regain a good color and vigorous growth.
