iOS Network Programming with Swift 2 Modeling Forecast Data An Icon Enum

Would it not be more elegant to avoid switching over all the raw values?

Since the raw values are already defined, I feel it would be better to use something like this:

    init(value: String) {
        if let icon = WeatherIcon.init(rawValue: value) {
            self = icon
        } else {
            self = .UnexpectedType

Is there a particular reason, why the switching-over- rawValues-approach was used?

Good point ... Maybe Pasan was just demonstrating how to override a default fallible initializer to a non-fallible one. But your solution is good, too.
