Python Web Scraping: Find the live weather report of a given city

Python Web Scraping: Exercise-21 with Solution

Write a Python program to find the live weather report (temperature, wind speed, description and weather) of a given city.

Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

import requests
from pprint import pprint
def weather_data(query):
	res=requests.get('http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather?'+query+'&APPID=b35975e18dc93725acb092f7272cc6b8&units=metric');
	return res.json();
def print_weather(result,city):
	print("{}'s temperature: {}°C ".format(city,result['main']['temp']))
	print("Wind speed: {} m/s".format(result['wind']['speed']))
	print("Description: {}".format(result['weather'][0]['description']))
	print("Weather: {}".format(result['weather'][0]['main']))
def main():
	city=input('Enter the city:')
	print()
	try:
	  query='q='+city;
	  w_data=weather_data(query);
	  print_weather(w_data, city)
	  print()
	except:
	  print('City name not found...')
if __name__=='__main__':
	main()
  
 

Output

Enter the city: Brazil

Brazil's temperature: 16.45°C 
Wind speed: 2.1 m/s
