Why are we replacing mCurrent with Forecast variables?

This lesson doesn't really explain why we are doing that...

Forecast now encapsulates the current weather conditions (along with the daily and hourly) so we no longer need it in the MainActivity. Since the Forecast contains the current conditions, we'll need to manipulate a Forecast object.

Keeping the daily, hourly and current weather conditions together in one Forecast is a cleaner solution to maintaining all three separately in the controller, since they are logically related.
