For api documentation on the current weather API, see the OpenWeatherMap weather API docs.
Weather weather = await weatherStation.getCurrentWeather();

The Temperature class holds a temperature and can output the temperature in Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin:
double celsius = weather.temperature.celsius; double fahrenheit = weather.temperature.celsius; double kelvin = weather.temperature.kelvin;

For API documentation on the forecast API, see the OpenWeatherMap forecast API docs.
List<Weather> forecasts = await weatherStation.getFiveDayForecast();
