In the previous tip we explained how you can retrieve weather forecast data using Invoke-WebRequest. This was pure black-and-white text.
To get a colorful report, on Windows 10 you can take advantage of control sequences supported by powershell.exe. Simply run the code below inside a PowerShell console:
$City = 'Hannover'
(Invoke-WebRequest "http://wttr.in/$City" -UserAgent curl).content -split "`n"
By setting the user agent to “curl”, the output includes the color control sequences which in turn are picked up by Windows 10 powershell.exe.
