A BBC weather girl has shared a fascinating look at how she puts together a forecast from her living room.

Abbie Dewhurst, from Grimsby, is a weather presenter at BBC Look North and posted a TikTok video offering a behind-the-scenes glimpse of her working from home set-up.

She told how it involves editing her own clips and uploading graphics using her phone, recording live reports on her laptop – and munching on lots of snacks.

Abbie begins the video by pouring herself a ‘lovely cup of tea’ before tackling the ‘thousand texts from BBC login’.

Once she’s in, she reveals various maps and charts on her computer, explaining: ‘We have here weather observations, satellite temperatures and the forecast for the next few days so that we can jot down a few notes on what we’re going to talk about.’

She went on: ‘Then we have a Zoom conference call – don’t we all – where we talk about all sorts of things.

‘It requires lots of tea, we like to chat about pressure charts and weather fronts and whatnot.

‘Then we move on to our radio pre-records, which we do using our phones and we just ping them back to the eight local radio stations.’

Abbie told how her next job is to record live radio forecasts, which she does using her laptop and a microphone attached to her headphones.

She added: ‘[This] then requires snacks, hungry business this.’

The team then edit their TV graphics onto the report using their phones, which Abbie demonstrates in the clip.

She then sets up her camera – or phone – on a tripod to record her forecast, which she edits herself using iMovie.
