Meteorologists and weather forecasters across the US paid tribute to late rock star Prince in the only way they know how - by turning the rain purple and filling their broadcasts with puns.

From suggestions of driving in your little red Corvette to partying in the sun like it's 1999, local forecasters in various American newsrooms were offering up their own little homages to the deceased singer, who passed away at 57 on Thursday.

Hits such as When Doves Cry, Raspberry Beret, Kiss, Cream and Breakfast Can Wait featured in countless weather broadcasts in the days that followed the singer's death.

The mash-up comes from YouTube account NewsBeFunny, who love to provide us with examples of the best bits of news shows from around the world.
