Get Weather Report from Terminal

I’ve been on a kick recently about doing everything in the terminal and I became excited about the possibility of grabbing weather through the terminal. I was excited until my little research on the subject revealed that this dead horse has been beaten left and right and up and down and diagonally. There were so many different ways of doing it, I sorta lost the urge to create a post about it. Well, here I am anyways listing the ones I found to be the most interesting. Check ’em out if you’re interested…
