JSON in playground not working...tried all previous suggestions

I have looked through the questions about the JSON data not coming up in the playground and I have tried every option people suggested with no avail. let apiKey = "xxx"

let baseURL = NSURL(string: "https://api.forecast.io/forecast/\(apiKey)/") let forecastURL = NSURL(string: "40.678840,-73.948774", relativeToURL: baseURL)

-----provides a popup of a image of safari let apiKey = "xxx"

let baseURL = NSURL(string: "https://api.forecast.io/forecast/\(apiKey)/") let forecastURL = NSURL(string: "37.8267,-122.423", relativeToURL: baseURL) let weather = NSData(contentsOfURL: forecastURL!, options: nil, error: nil) let string = NSString(data: weather!, encoding: NSUTF8StringEncoding)

------provides a nil value on line "let weather" and safari image on other lines

let apiKey = "xxx"

let baseURL = NSURL(string: "https://api.forecast.io/forecast/\(apiKey)/") let forecastURL = NSURL(string: "37.8267,-122.423", relativeToURL: baseURL) let weatherData = NSData(contentsOfURL: forecastURL!, options: nil, error: nil) println(weatherData!)
