Ashok;

I am not super familiar with the forecast.io API, but it looks like you are not using the correct API call to get the data returned. The API call should be in the format of:

https://api.forecast.io/forecast/APIKEY/LATITUDE,LONGITUDE

In your code I don't see that format, an API Key, or the sending in LAT or LONG coordinates. The Extra Credit project requires some work if you attempt to submit node forecast.js 90210 in that you will need to convert the zip code, 90210 into Latitude/Longitude coordinates to send to the API call. You will also need to register with forecast.io to get an API Key.

I could, of course, be missing something but my experience with their API is that it is a bit more involved than sending in a city name, "San Diego".

Just my thoughts.

Happy coding,
Ken

Try checking this out, and make sure to get you API Keys for both variables.

How do we protect our API keys so that other users can see these if we store our projects on something open source such as github and start making thousands of requests and not allow to make adiditional calls because of some some services only allowing so many requests in a day.
