Phallic-shaped snow cloud heading to Devon

Viewers watching a BBC weather report got the giggles when a penis-shaped snow cloud appeared to be making its way towards Devon.

The weather forecast, presented by weatherman Matt Taylor, was aired during Children in Need, and showed the phallic image so large that it appeared to block out the city, reports the Metro.

According to the North Devon Journal, eagle-eyed Twitter users shared the image online.

People were left sniggering even more when Matt appeared to brush his hand over the image.

One man, DaveinNorwich, wrote: "Matt needs to be careful where his hand is going! That's one interesting weather feature over Devon!"



The forecast itself actually proved to be correct - no, not a giant penis attacking Devon, rather the city saw a dusting of snow fall on Sunday.

Indeed, many across the country woke up to see a sprinkling of snow on Sunday, and the white stuff has been seen in the area since Friday. Many parts of northern England have also seen snow, including Yorkshire and Liverpool.



A severe weather warning has been issued by the Met Office for rain and wind in the south east of England for Sunday.

For Monday, a yellow 'be aware' warning for heavy rain has been issued for Wales, north west England, north east England, Yorkshire, the West Midlands, and London and the south east of England. Meanwhile, a higher amber 'be prepared' warning has been issued for the south west of England.

The amber warning reads: "On Monday a further broad area of heavy, persistent rain will move northwards across southwest England. Although the more persistent rain should clear from Devon by early afternoon, heavy and possibly thundery showers are likely to follow.

"Please be prepared for further disruption to transport due to localised flooding, whilst flooding of homes and businesses is also possible."

The forecast going into Monday reads: "Further wet and windy weather will spread into southern and central parts overnight (Sunday), with some hill snow in places. Clear, cold and frosty to the north with freezing fog patches.

"Wet and windy weather will continue to spread northwards across the UK on Monday, with some snow over higher ground of Wales and Northern England. Becoming milder in the south."
