And finally… #3wordweather

With the recent snow and generally chaotic #BeastFromTheEast, it’s safe to say we’ve all gone a bit weather crazy. If you’re like us (or frankly if you live anywhere in Europe), your social media feeds were probably filled with snowy snaps and icy Instagrams as people braved the cold conditions to build snowmen and enjoy the unusual scenes at work (our office even made it into PR Moment!).

Brits famously love speaking about the weather, and noticing this trend, the Met Office has put together #3WordWeather, an interactive map showing the country’s favourite weather words at that moment. It’s split by towns and cities, with the data being drawn from Twitter. Unsurprisingly, at the time of writing this blog, words like ‘cold’ and ‘windy’ reign supreme!

You can get involved in contributing too – just tweet a description of the weather in three words and your nearest town, alongside the hashtag #3wordweather. Just click on your city and the plus sign to see if your tweet makes the cut. So, what’s your forecast?
