The internet provides a rich source of data for those who are interested: stock prices, baseball statistics, the littoral area in acres of lakes in Minnesota, and much more. In the United States, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration publishes daily weather forecasts at http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/forecasts/.
Your task is to write a program that retrieves the current weather forecast for a requested city. When you are finished, you are welcome to read or run a suggested solution, or to post your own solution or discuss the exercise in the comments below.
