Weather data integration

It would be useful to integrate weather data from online services. Weather has a significant impact on construction activities and is important to capture throughout the day. It would be useful to see temperature, wind speeds, humidity and general weather information. Weather data from an web service would also enable us to capture consistent information for analysis and reporting.

    This feature should automatically pull Weather and Wind information with Superior Accuracy from AccuWeather.

    This saves time and captures much more detailed info than if recorded manually.

    Ideally the weather would auto update reports and logs throughout the day, based on:

    - Specified time intervals

    - Significant changes in Temperature

    - Significant changes in Wind speed
