On this day of true religious importance, International Drag Day, a brief history lesson: The time a Welsh weather presenter delivered the entire forecast in drag references.

In 2017 – which was precisely seven decades ago in coronavirus time – BBC broadcaster Owain Wyn Evans discussed Britain’s drab weather of grey clouds and rain using glittery and sequinned drag terms.

The 36-year-old reflected on the forecast three years on when he crammed every reference you could think of, from RuPaul through to Conchita Wurst, during a 90-second clip.

BBC weather presenter gave entire forecast in drag references to celebrate International Drag Day. 

“Happy International Drag Day, my sweet kweens!” Evans tweeted Thrsday morning (16 July).

“John Samuel just reminded me that this drag-saturated forecast was broadcast three years ago. Doesn’t time fly?”

Speaking of incoming rain, the host declares: “I hope you didn’t get Courtney Act in any downpours.

“So that weather front has indeed sashayed away.”

He adds: “That sunshine Charlie Hides behind all of these clouds for a time.”

Evans also explained that weather fronts will be rising like a phoenix, referring to the hit Eurovision song by Austrian Conchita Wurst.

Finishing the clip, Evans whips out a fan as he declares it’s going to get breezey.

It’s certainly not the first time Evans has gone viral. who might as well add it to his LinkedIn skills at this point.

While many Britons gainfully clock-into work each day from home, choosing which pair of sweatpants to wear for the second day in a row, Evans donned his sharpest suit and prepared for his solo.

He performed the BBC News opening theme completely on his drum set.

In the video, he tells viewers: “That’s the forecast, stay safe and I’ll see you soon.”

Evans then plays along to the theme tune while dressed in a three-piece suit, and those wearing their pasta-stained slacks should take notes, to be honest.
