Json exception no value for time, no value for humidity

I am currently on the weather app course and keep the app keeps throwing this exception even though the JSON object is still producing the data. Here is the code

private static final String TAG = MainActivity.class.getSimpleName();

private CurrentWeather mCurrentWeather;
protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {

    String apiKey = "802e9e7ad9d4a3fcfba47cef8a20b9d0";
    double latitude =  37.8267;
    double longitude = -122.423;
    String forecastUrl = "https://api.forecast.io/forecast/" + apiKey +
            "/" + latitude + "," + longitude;

    if(isNetworkAvailable()) {
        OkHttpClient client = new OkHttpClient();
        Request request = new Request.Builder()

        Call call = client.newCall(request);
        call.enqueue(new Callback() {
            public void onFailure(Call call, IOException e) {


            public void onResponse(Call call, Response response) throws IOException {

                try {
                    String jsonData =  response.body().string();
                    Log.v(TAG, jsonData);
                    if (response.isSuccessful()) {
                        mCurrentWeather = getCurrentDetails(jsonData);
                    } else {


                } catch (IOException | JSONException e) {
                    Log.e(TAG, "Execption found: " + e);

    else {
        Toast.makeText(this, R.string.network_unavailable, Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
    Log.d(TAG, "Main ui code is running");

private CurrentWeather getCurrentDetails(String jsonData) throws JSONException{
        JSONObject forecast = new JSONObject(jsonData);
        String timezone = forecast.getString("timezone");
         Log.i(TAG, "From JSON: " + timezone);

         JSONObject currently = new JSONObject(jsonData);
    CurrentWeather currentWeather = new CurrentWeather();


    Log.d(TAG, currentWeather.getFormattedTime());
        return currentWeather;

private boolean isNetworkAvailable() {
    ConnectivityManager manager = (ConnectivityManager)
    NetworkInfo networkInfo = manager.getActiveNetworkInfo();
    boolean isAvailable = false;
    if(networkInfo != null && networkInfo.isConnected()){
        isAvailable = true;
    return isAvailable;

private void alertUserAboutError() {
    if (!MainActivity.this.isFinishing()) {
        AlertDialogFragment dialog = new AlertDialogFragment();
        dialog.show(getFragmentManager(), "error_dialog");

You should print out the response.body().string() to see if you are actually getting data.

I think the line JSONObject currently = new JSONObject(jsonData); Should be JSONObject currently = forecast.getJsonObject('currently');

I think the line JSONObject currently = new JSONObject(jsonData); Should be JSONObject currently = forecast.getJsonObject('currently');
