WEATHERMAN: Web Weather Forecaster

How many times have you asked yourself “What’s the weather going to be like today and over the next couple of days?” Then you have to turn on your computer, pull up a web page with a weather forecast, and wade through all the ads.  Yep, I know. Pretty tiring and time-consuming.

So now, the wait is over!

Introducing “Weatherman: Web Weather Forecaster“, the web-based three-day weather forecaster that provides all you ever wanted to know, right at your fingertips… literally!

Web-based Weather Station

This Arduino project displays information on a 4-line LCD of local weather conditions. Using an Ethernet shield on an Arduino UNO, the unit requests data from openweathermap.org (using their api) and parses the information to obtain temperature (current, min and max), humidity, pressure, wind speed and direction, and textual description of current conditions. It is intended that this project will migrate from using the current Ethernet shield / UNO combination to an Nano and ESP8266 WiFi module for simple WiFi connectivity, However, I thought that this current version – naked and unhoused – may be on interest to some of you.
