You're nearly there!

The "ParseWeatherForecast" method should have only one return statement, at the end. Any code after a "return" will never be executed.

If these hints don't fit your situation, start a fresh new question and post your own code in it. Be sure to use Markdown formatting to preserve the appearance (as seen here).
