Weather with icons in Power BI Report.

Hello Community,

 

I am trying to create a Power BI Report which has a little Weather section that should show Today's Weather and Tomorrow's Weather for 3 selected suburbs including Melbourne, Australia as shown in the first attachment. We want this on Reports and not Dashboard tiles so embedding href is not an option.

I have checked Australia's official Weather Website (http://www.bom.gov.au/) and luckily API Endpoint and API Portal are listed on it as per the second screenshot (API Endpoint http://www.bom.gov.au/fwo/ and API Portal / Home Page http://www.bom.gov.au/catalogue/data-feeds.shtml at https://www.programmableweb.com/api/australian-bureau-meteorology)

 

I tried to Get data by using the above links in Web and the tables are coming as the next 5 screenshots.

 

However, I was thinking there would be a straight forward method to embed City or Suburb Weathers pulling in the icons if it's Cloudy, Sunny, etc, automatically.

 

Can anyone please let me know how should I achieve this?

 

Thanks in advance.

 

Kind regards,

Bhoga

I've been playing around with how to feed weather data into Power BI and realised there is no need to duplicate a webpage resource ... can just go to the webpage any time. All we really need is the particular data that could be useful in an analysis.

How did you manage to get the weather into your dashboard? I tried using 'Web' and the links you posted and can't get it to work.

Hi @Anonymous 

Sorry for the delay in reply.

It's been pretty straight forward for me. I used 'Web' in Get data and landed up in the Weather. Attached are the screenshots for your reference.

Let me know how you go...

Note: Please assign points if this helps.

Kind regards,

Bhoga
