You can test using the yahoo weather api which sends you the response in (also)JSON
http://query.yahooapis.com/v1/public/yql?q=select%20item%20from%20weather.forecast%20where%20location%3D%2248907%22&format=json

Yahoo API is not supported anymore you can try ClimaCell API which is free for a developer account. I have been using this for my many projects or you can write a wrapper around this API to suit your needs.
https://www.climacell.co/weather-api/

They have pretty detailed documentation with sandbox testing if you would like. I found their forecast is very accurate and it goes back by 20 years if you want to work with big data or analyze historical climate change.

Try their real time api
https://developer.climacell.co/v3/reference#get-realtime

Also you can setup webhooks to recieve notifications and postbacks for weather updates or your users can setup alerts for weather changes of any specific locations.

I have multiple mobile apps on which I use their API and its the best one I have came across yet. Thought of sharing it with you.

And thank you for bringing us up to date.
 
I miss the old days when I would think up a sinister scheme for world domination and you would show a little emotional support. So just look at this tiny ad:
