Project Description

Many years back I created a simple python based CLI package that wrapped the NWS API to get weather forecasts, discussions and current conditions. Meanwhile I have not had time to keep it up-to-date so many pieces are broken or using deprecated features of the REST API. The package is useful to get weather information much quicker from CLI than clicking through the NWS website.

Goal for this Hackweek

The goal for this project is update and fix the package as well as add new features. Also, the documentation can be updated to be more thorough and useful.
