How to parse AccuWeather JSON Data into CurrentWeather Class

For those using the AccuWeather API here is an example showing how to parse the JSON Data into the CurrentWeather class. Don't forget to change the data types of the variables in the CurrentWeather class.

private CurrentWeather getCurrentDetails(String jsonData) throws JSONException {
    JSONArray jsonArray = new JSONArray(jsonData);
    JSONObject row = jsonArray.getJSONObject(0);
    String LocalObservationDateTime = row.getString("LocalObservationDateTime");

    JSONObject temperature = row.getJSONObject("Temperature");
    JSONObject imperial = temperature.getJSONObject("Imperial");
    String value = imperial.getString("Value");

    Log.i(TAG,"From JSON: : " + LocalObservationDateTime);
    Log.i(TAG, "Temperature : " + value);

    CurrentWeather currentWeather = new CurrentWeather();
    currentWeather.setLocationLabel("Alcatraz Island, CA");

    return currentWeather;
