WUnderground no longer provides API keys for free so we've updated the code in this guide to use the newer OpenWeatherMap code, the assembly is the same but the final graphics will differ!

Weather Station

In this project, we'll learn how to make a DIY fully featured weather station using an ESP8266 and a 2.4" TFT touchscreen display. This project pulls weather data using the Wunderground API. It displays the date, time, current weather conditionals, 4-day forecast and even moon phases.

This great code is by Daniel Eichhorn - we just made a lovely case for it!
