getHumidity() recieves 0 from JSON

Hi everyone. I'm trying to implement humidity and windspeed values to the Hourly list. Even though I do everything exactly like we did for temperature, time, summary and icon; I'm receiving 0 for getHumidity() and getWindSpeed() methods. I checked the url to see if they really are 0, but they are not. I have no idea where the problem is. I'm not getting any errors, just 0.0 for both values. My only guess is that I'm not putting these two values in a textview or something, I'm just getting them, and putting them on a toast message. I'm adding the relevant codes:

Hourly.java (Only related part):

public class Hourly implements Parcelable{
private double mWindSpeed;
private double mHumidity;

public double getWindSpeed() {
    double windspeed = (int)(mWindSpeed * 1.6);
    return (int)windspeed;

public void setWindSpeed(double windSpeed) {
    mWindSpeed = windSpeed;

public double getHumidity() {
    double humidity = mHumidity * 100;
    return (int)humidity;

public void setHumidity(double humidity) {
    mHumidity = humidity;
public int describeContents() {
    return 0;

public void writeToParcel(Parcel dest, int flags) {

private Hourly(Parcel in){
    mWindSpeed = in.readDouble();
    mHumidity = in.readDouble();

public Hourly(){


public static final Parcelable.Creator<Hourly> CREATOR = new Parcelable.Creator<Hourly>() {
    public Hourly createFromParcel(Parcel source) {
        return new Hourly(source);

    public Hourly[] newArray(int size) {
        return new Hourly[size];

MainActivity.java (Only related part):

private Hourly[] getHourlyForecast(String jsonData) throws JSONException{
    JSONObject forecast = new JSONObject(jsonData);
    String timezone = forecast.getString("timezone");
    JSONObject jsonHourly = forecast.getJSONObject("hourly");
    JSONArray data = jsonHourly.getJSONArray("data");

    Hourly[] hours = new Hourly[data.length()];

    for(int i=0; i < data.length(); i++) {
        JSONObject hourly = data.getJSONObject(i);
        Hourly hour = new Hourly();


        hours[i] = hour;
    return hours;

HourAdapter.java (Only related part):

    public void onClick(View v) {
        mHourly = new Hourly();
        double humidity = mHourly.getHumidity();
        double windspeed = mHourly.getWindSpeed();
        String message = String.format("Humidity: %s Wind: %s", humidity, windspeed);
        Toast.makeText(mContext, message, Toast.LENGTH_LONG).show();

Again, I'm getting the data and displaying it with no problem. No errors at all. It's just the wrong data for some reason. JSON key names are correct. Thanks in advance.
