weatherData returning nil in console output

I have been looking through of all of the other questions but none of them were able to help me, sadly.. When I run the app, it just prints nil in the console.

Here is my code within the viewDidLoad method:

 let baseURL = NSURL(string: "https://api.forecast.io/forecast/\(apiKey)/")

        let forecastURL = NSURL(string: "55.674722,12.351032", relativeToURL: baseURL)

        let weatherData = NSData(contentsOfURL: forecastURL!, options: nil, error: nil)


I hope someone will be able to recognize something I didn't!
