Problems with this challenge

Finally, to insert the temperature into the div, use jQuery's text() method. You'll need to pass the temperature into this method. The Open Weather Map API returns an object with the property main; that property holds another object with the property "temp". To access the temperature, use dot syntax, like this: weatherReport.main.temp

weather.js
$(document).ready(function() {
  var weatherAPI = 'http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/weather';
  var data = {
    q : "Portland,OR",
    units : "metric"
  };

  function showWeather (weatherReport) {

    $("#temperature").text()

  }
});
index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<head>
  <meta charset="utf-8">
  <title>What's the Weather Like?</title>
  <script src="jquery.js"></script>
  <script src="weather.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
  <div id="main">
    <h1>Current temperature: <span id="temperature"></span>&deg;</h1>
  </div>
</body>
</html>

You're almost there, now you just need to pass the value to your function. The challenge shows you exactly what to pass where it says: "To access the temperature, use dot syntax, like this: weatherReport.main.temp".

Since you're so close, this is only a slight spoiler:

  function showWeather (weatherReport) {
    $("#temperature").text(weatherReport.main.temp)
  }
