British meteorologist Simon King of the BBC morning show 5 Live Breakfast quite brilliantly incorporated listener submitted slang expressions from various region of the UK into the day’s weather report. King’s report was part of a Twitter campaign by The Met Office (national weather service) to get people involved with how the weather is reported in their respective areas.
The Met Office is appealing to the public to help them identify words used to describe weather in their area, and it has launched #3WordWeather on Twitter so words can be submitted. 5 live Breakfast’s Simon King used slang terms in a weather summary this morning which were sent in by listeners.
As the UK’s national weather service, we are always looking for better ways of communicating weather including the use of regional language. Find out more about how you can help us shape future forecasts here https://t.co/xhUAUfo61q #3wordweather pic.twitter.com/TtPfnUC01M
