Raspberry Pi - Weather Client

Weather is an unpredictable thing, so now-a-days there are apps to predict the weather and help you plan your day. Most major smartphones have these apps built-in, adding extra convenience in the morning. I decided to build a Weather Client for the Raspberry Pi, to give it too, a weather client.
