The script displays:

- the current temperature
- today's date
- today's temperature range
- tomorrow's temperature range
- a verbal description of today's weather
- weather icons drawn with math and python's drawing library

I wanted to practice working with Python and build a Raspberry Pi project that I would use on a daily basis. My favorite part was figuring out how to draw icons using Python's  [Image Processing Library]( It was a lot of fun to print out a case and figure out a way to mount it on the wall.

The python script that runs the monitor.
