The opening of "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" has seen the franchise insert itself into almost every aspect of daily life.

And weather reports, it appears, are no exception.

Weather presenter Sian Welby, who works for the U.K.'s Channel 5, appears in a report that's racking up lots of attention on YouTube because of the pure volume of "Star Wars" puns she managed to insert into it.

"If you're forced to awaken early tomorrow morning, it will be on the dark side," she said at one point.

"But as you can see, fairly mild, with temperatures in double digits, far, far away toward the southeast of England, there's new hope for sunshine developing in the afternoon."

The video had drawn over 300,000 hits as of Thursday afternoon.

And it's not the first time that Welby has incorporated topical pop cultural references into her broadcasts.

Earlier this year, she challenged viewers to spot how many movie references she made for "Back to the Future" day.

One thing's for certain: Welby's weather reports would make a pretty deadly drinking game.
