(Newser) – She didn't detail the climate patterns on Tatooine, but Sian Welby did the next best thing. The UK Channel 5 forecaster (or, for the purposes of this story, Channel 5 "Stormscooper") gave a quick weather update this week, and the Force was strong with this one, per Mashable. Whether it's because The Force Awakens opens Friday or because she's just a Jedi junkie, Welby managed to squeeze in 12 Star Wars puns during the 40-second clip. ITV reports she pulled off a similar stunt in October centered on Back to the Future. Do watch this video—there is no try. (Critics and fans who've gotten a sneak peek of the film are in awe.)
