Watch a series of brave, ambitious (even unlikely) experiments that illustrate how weather works.
The best way to truly understand weather is to get inside it. "Wild Weather" is an awe-inspiring one-hour documentary that takes viewers into the eye of the storm with revealing and ambitious experiments that show weather as it’s never been seen before.
The film introduces a global group of experts who risk their lives to demonstrate the power of wind, water and temperature — taking these simple “ingredients” and transforming them into something spectacular and powerful for everyone to understand.
Among the team’s meteorological miracles: recreating a desert dust storm and a dangerous fire whirl; firing a probe into the center of a tornado; creating visual representations of thunder’s destructive power; and triggering a fast-moving avalanche that uncovers secrets about the powder cloud’s acceleration.
"Wild Weather" will forever change the way viewers think about the elements.
