The Weather Strikes Back: Meteorologist Uses ‘Star Wars' to Awaken Forecast

A weather forecast calling for some rain and mild temperatures sounds like an everyday occurrence in the United Kingdom.

But with mentions of wookies and troopers, meteorologist Sian Welby delivered a "Star Wars" forecast for Channel 5 News Wednesday.

"If you Luke farther west, you will see a glimmer of sunshine if you wookie," Welby said. "However, there will be a fairly light breeze. The Force is strong though for Northern Scotland and then tonight the weather strikes back."

If you listen closely, you will hear a dozen puns in her weather report. She delivered the clever forecast just prior to the opening weekend of the highly anticipated blockbuster "Star Wars: The Force Awakens."

This isn't the first time Welby snuck famous phrases from movies into her forecast. In October, Welby did a "Back to the Future"-themed forecast to celebrate the film's 20th anniversary.
