Get forecast for period 0

I'm trying to get forecast information, but I just started with JSON, so I'm having a hard time with the basics.

How do I get info for period 0?

fc = parsed_json['forecast']['txt_forecast']['period']['icon']

for i in range (0,7):
fc[i]

print fc[0]

--------

so, this prints

{u'title': u'Saturday', u'icon_url': u'http://icons-ak.wxug.com/i/c/k/mostly...', u'fcttext_metric': u'Mostly cloudy in the morning, then overcast. Fog early. High of 15C. Winds from the NNE at 5 to 15 km/h.', u'period': 0, u'pop': u'0', u'fcttext': u'Mostly cloudy in the morning, then overcast. Fog early. High of 59F. Winds from the NNE at 5 to 10 mph.', u'icon': u'mostlycloudy'}

How can I fetch the value for 'icon'?

I was not able to understand the language you're using but I suppose it's python: if so, it seems you can access the data as a dictionary.

Yes, it's Python. Can you be more specific? Remember it's the first time I'm doing something like this. I'm even new to Python.
What do you mean with "access data as a dictionary? How can I find the available "dictionary items"?

Thanks

Edit: Googling "python dictionaries" shows a lot of interesting stuff. I think I have enough to continue. Thank you!

You're welcome, anyway the reference I spotted about python dictionaries was at http://docs.python.org/2/tutorial/dat...
