This Is Not A
I'm Glad That's Explained, Then
I would like to imagine that Met Office meteorologist Emma Sharples was using the sort of voice one uses to try to explain something to a particularly dim child (or, in this case the nearest thing to it, namely a 'journalist' from the (B)independent) in the following quote from this item:
"Talking about "thundersnow", where the rain associated with a thunderstorm falls as snow, she said: "It is possible, all that really needs is for thunder to happen at the same time as the snow.""
I'm so happy to have the record set straight; we might have been terribly misled otherwise.
