  2. Create new PyQt6 project in your preferred development environment.
  3. Use QtDesigner tool to design the user interface for your app. this can include widgets such as labels, buttons and text fields for displaying weather data.
  4. Use the requests library to make API calls to weather service such as OpenWeatherMap to retrieve current weather data for specific location.
  5. Use the data retrieved from the API to update the text fields and labels in your app’s user interface.
  6. Use QtCore.QTimer to refresh the weather data at regular intervals.
  7. Use sys.exit() to close the application.
  8. Run the app with python


Note: This is high level overview and you will have to do research on how to use PyQt6 and how to make API calls with python specifically with the API you choose.
