You must remove the newline from each input before you test it. Use the function chomp.

    Just a note, jhumphreys did chomp the input in the original program:

    chomp($weather, $temperature);

    Not the syntax I would use (would be more idiomatic and chomp at input as some of the posters did), but nonetheless, the newlines should be gone.
