The Met Office provided science advice and guidance as well as facts and figures about the weather over the past few winters to the producers of the programme.
The BBC says: “This special sees the team set up camp in their very own weather workshop. Their mission is to get under the bonnet of our winter weather and explain it as never before. Dallas, Liz and Jem find out first-hand what it feels like to stand in one of our worst British rain storms and to have a blizzard smack you right in the face, as they challenge their ingenious weather chamber to recreate the conditions of two recent big storms in order to really experience how much of a punch those weather events packed. And in a genuine Bang first, they attempt to make cloud, rain and snow in the studio and from scratch.”
The programme is now available to watch on BBC iPlayer and is available until Thursday 17th March.
