Simple Weather Clock

Introduction

I have always wanted a clock that gives me a little weather info. The problem is that most weather stations want to give you 40 different pieces of information in little text that you have to be standing right next to read, and I wanted to be able to see this sitting on my couch. Thus was born the Simple Weather Clock. This gist documents the various pieces of hardware and software needed to construct it.

The core of the weather clock is a Raspberry Pi. All this should work with any Raspberry Pi model as long as it has network connectivity of some sort. If you want to do auto dimming of the display, you need the official Raspberry Pi 7" touchscreen and a Pi Camera (or I2C light sensor). Here's the full list of hardware I use:
