Twitter erupts over penis-shaped weather map with some suggesting a cock-up

A penis-shaped weather map took Twitter by storm with many in the comments section demonstrating their shock at the coincidence.

The weather forecast posted by ESTOFEX, which is the European Storm Forecast Experiment that assists meteorologists in predicting extreme weather conditions, showed a level 2 storm alert across Europe.

The predicted storm is expected to hit between Wednesday (August 24) morning to Thursday (August 25) and was forecasted by ESTOFEX forecaster Tomas Pucik.

While the forecast in itself wasn't responsible for the hubbub it had caused on the social networking site, the shape of said forecast had ultimately caused the Twitter eruption.

The post on Twitter garnered over 300 likes with many in the comments section stunned by the penis-shaped weather forecast with one user saying: "Thank God we're nowhere near Level 3".

A couple of users attempted to get a hashtag of "#FreeWilly" trending on Twitter – a charming reference to the 1993 film of a captive orca whale at an amusement park.

The usage of the double entendre was particularly popular within Twitter users with one commenting: "The weather looks like it might be about to cock-up in the next few days".

According to Pucik's initial report, the storm alerts are predicted to travel across the likes of Northern Spain, Southern Italy, North West Turkey and several more regions across Europe.
