Have you ever thought about making an application where a user gives the name of a city and gets live weather updates about that city as an output? Well, in this article I am going to walk you through how to get live weather updates using Python.
How to Get Live Weather Updates using Python?
There are many ways to get live weather conditions for any city using the Python programming language. You can either use the weather APIs provided by third-party apps or you can also scrape the live weather data from a particular city.
If you are using weather APIs provided by any platform, you need to connect to their paid services to work with the weather APIs. But if you use your web scraping skills, it will be free. So in the section below, I’m going to walk you through how to get live weather updates from any city using Python.
Live Weather Updates using Python
To get the live weather conditions of any city using Python, you first have to install the BeautifulSoup library in Python. You can easily install this Python library in your system by using the pip command:
- pip install beautifulsoup4
After installing this library, you can now start with this task by importing the necessary Python libraries that we need for this task. After importing the libraries we need to scrape the weather updates of a city by searching about it on Google. Below is how we can do it using Python:
In the above code, we are searching for a city on Google, and then we are scraping the data about that particular city concerning location, time, info, and weather. After running the above Python code you will see an output as shown below.

So this is how to can get live weather updates of any city by using your web scraping skills. I hope you liked this article on how to get live weather updates using Python. You can use such ideas while creating a final year project where you can show such an application running on an interactive user interface.
