“The Force Awakens” fever is spreading around the world, especially in the U.K.
A British weather girl proved the Force was very strong when she crammed countless “Star Wars” puns into a 40-second forecast.
Sian Welby of Channel 5 delivered the inside jokes in a flawless, deadpan style that would fool any Stormtrooper.
“Well it’s another unusually day, mild day today with a Leia of cloud covering the UK — but if you Luke father west you’ll be seeing a layer of sunshine, if you’re Wookiee,” she began, when describing Britain’s winter weather (which is in Celsius not Fahrenheit).
“There will be a fairly light breeze — the Force is strong, though, for northern Scotland. And tonight the weather strikes back,” she continued.
“Far, far away towards the south east of England, there’s a new hope for some sunshine.”
Welby even managed to drop Stormtroopers, “The Empire Strikes Back,” the Dark Side and more into her intergalactic wordplay.
