This challenge consists of using Python to generate a random weather forecast report.
By investigating this challenge you are going to further improve your skills at:
- Using lists and accessing values of a list randomly,
- Concatenating strings together to create a longer string.
What’s a list?
In Python, a list is used to save collection of values. For instance, to save a list of world cities we could declare a variable called “worldCities” and assign a list as follows:
worldCities = ["London", "Sao Paulo", "New-York", "Beijing", "Paris", "Cairo", "Dehli"]
Based on this what do you think len(worldCities) would return?
What’s about worldCities?
Or worldCities ?
Let’s get started!
We have started the weather forecast report for you. You will need to complete this code to provide a full weather forecast report describing:
- What type of sky to expect: clear blue, cloudy, dark grey, etc.
- What type of precipitations to expect: light rain, heavy snow, hail storm, fog, etc.
- The predicted strength in mph and direction of the wind,
Create two lists of keywords, one for hot weather (e.g. hot=[“dry weather”, “hot air”, “strong sun”]) and one for cold weather (e.g. cold=[“ice on the road”,”chances of snow”, “icy wind”]).
Adapt your code to check where the temperature is high or low:
- If your temperature is above a certain threshold add some hot weather information to your report.
- If your temperature is below a certain threshold add some cold weather information to your report.
