Clock is easy to program but weather.. Weather needs instruments or access to a weather signal.. Have you made a choice for the wheather source ?

Of course, any group of sensors can be interfaced and read by the powerful Pie..

Look every sensor you can imagine needs a power input and

provides a signal output like an analog_voltage or frequency or ASCII text...

Well the same power that the Pie uses can also run a sensor and the Pie can read all of the outputs (even some not mentioned)...

Software programming will by required but that is why you use a microprocessor .... They are versatile by allowing any action by simply changing a few typed program instructions...
