Hi, first thanks, great applet. 

Being that I live in the North-Eastern US we often times get Wind Chill values (when the temp is below 40F and their is wind it can feel colder).  So I wanted to add that in to the current weather.  Here is a diff of the code.  Feel free to adapt it as you wish.

Sorry forgot to attach the image.  And yes, it is that cold.

I may play around with it a little more.  Not sure what happens when the temp gets above wind chill values, if that parameter is still in the JSON string or not.  Also on the opposite end of the scale; heat index when the temp gets above 80F.  May need to add an IF block on the wind chill.  I'll post new diffs as I make changes.

Great. I'm having some trouble uploading a new release to the Spices
website, but it's available from github:

https://github.com/mockturtl/cinnamon-weather/releases

Updating via the applets manager in cinnamon-settings is currently broken.

I'm told the dev team is aware of the problem.
