Bummer: Does Program.ParseWeatherForecast return WeatherForecast?

No compilation errors remain for my code in Task 1 of this challenge, but I just don't see why the error generated says my ParseWeatherForecast method is not returning a WeatherForecast object. Thanks for your help!

Program.cs
using System;
using System.IO;

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    public class Program
    {
        public static object ParseWeatherForecast(string[] values)
            {
                var weatherForecast = new WeatherForecast();
                weatherForecast.WeatherStationId = values[0];
                return weatherForecast;
            }
        public static void Main(string[] arg)
        {

        }
    }
}
WeatherForecast.cs
using System;

/* Sample CSV Data 

weather_station_id,time_of_day,condition,temperature,precipitation_chance,precipitation_amount
HGKL8Q,06/11/2016 0:00,Rain,53,0.3,0.03

HGKL8Q,06/11/2016 19:00,Clear,74,0,0
*/

namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    public class WeatherForecast
    {
        public string WeatherStationId { get; set; }
    }
}

Maybe typeobject is causing the problem try changing it to type Object

Thanks for the suggestion Jaspal, unfortunately changing type to "Object" didn't work. But, you got me to think about trying something else, like the object name itself. When I replaced the type with the actual object class "WeatherForecast," it worked.
