Build A DIY Weather Forecast Display With A Raspberry Pi And A LED Matrix

Weather displays are a fun project that also happen to be pretty useful. Over on Instructables, DIYer AughtNaughtZero shows how to build a display that will spell out the forecast for you each day. This project is powered by a Raspberry Pi that taps into Weather Underground. Once it pulls in the forecast, it displays the forecast using a word matrix that's backed with a string of LEDs. It's a pretty clever little design that's much different than projects we've seen before. You'll need some soldering skills and a lot of patience for this one, so head over to Instructables for the full guide.

    Why would you want to do that? I live in York England and the Weather Underground weather forecast app (embedded in my Google news page) for my city is 90-95% wrong. I look at it and now think exactly the opposite to get an accurate forecast.
