TV weather anchor Sian Welby slipped several "Star Wars" references into her Channel 5 forecast in the UK on Dec. 16 (video below).

"Well, it's another unusually mild day today with a Leia of cloud covering the UK, but if you Luke father west you will be seeing a glimmer of sunshine, if you're wookiee," Welby quipped, notes The Independent.

Welby dropped in more references and closed with: "Now, if you're forced to awaken early tomorrow morning, it will be on the dark side but as you can see, fairly mild with temperatures in double digits."

"Far, far away to the south-east of England, there's a new hope for some sunshine developing in the afternoon."

The Telegraph noted that she dropped in nine references, and added that the London premiere of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" just happened to land on Dec. 16.
