I am totally novice when it comes to this so hopefully this can be done easily. Since weather channel screwed up the old wunderground script by making people pay (cheapest was 200 per month) to use the API service, I've been looking for another. I found apixu and it should work. I need a script that can go to http://api.apixu.com/v1/current.json?key=(API KEY)&q=(ZIP CODE) and respond with whats posted there.
(it returns this)
