Weather affects the lives of the people in more ways than we realize. Using the AccuWeather API and their historical weather data we sought to develop an application that would formulate a relationship between weather and any other aspect in our lives. In order to achieve this task, we used Machine Learning algorithms and linear regression. This application has a huge variety of commercial and social usage. For example, this application can be extended to receive data from law enforcement agencies in order to find a pattern between crime rate and weather (temperature). This also gave us an opportunity to give back to the community we love, including the Pennsylvania State University. The University police can use this application to correlate sexual assault occurrences on campus with weather data. This will allow them to make important strategic decisions while deploying police force as studies have shown that there is direct relation between weather and crime rates.
