Mountain Forecast Web Scraper

A web scraper for https://www.mountain-forecast.com to collect weather forecasts for the highest 100 mountains in the United States.

For more information check out this article where I walk you through how I approached this project and used a Raspberry Pi to handle all of the daily data collection: https://towardsdatascience.com/web-scraping-mountain-weather-forecasts-using-python-and-a-raspberry-pi-f215fdf82c6b

What does the data look like?

Requirements:

  • Python 3 or higher
  • Pandas
  • Beautiful Soup

Future Improvements:

  • Collect weather forecasts for all mountains available.
