            while (true)
            {
                  Weather tw=new Weather();
                         loaclweather=tw.fillLocalWeather(tw.getCity(),tw.getCountry());
                  try {
                        Thread.sleep(sleepTime);

You can put debug statements to verify:

            while (true)
            {
                  Weather tw=new Weather();
                         loaclweather=tw.fillLocalWeather(tw.getCity(),tw.getCountry());
                  try {
                        System.out.println ( "Sleeping" ) ;
                        Thread.sleep(sleepTime);
                       
                  } catch (InterruptedException e) {
                        e.printStackTrace();
                  }
            }

Yes that is when it will stop.

When i run the class it will start . Am i right??

 try {
                        System.out.println ( "Sleeping" ) ;
                        Thread.sleep(sleepTime);
                       
                  }

In the above debug statement, Thread is sleeping its not killed. When i do cntl+c does that mean we killed the thread?

Yes, it will start.

>> In the above debug statement, Thread is sleeping its not killed. When i do cntl+c does that mean we killed the thread?

Yes the JVM will terminate all threads while exiting. The debug statement was given to verify:

If you get an output like:

Sleeping
Sleeping (this will come after sleepTime milliseconds, so you need to wait)
Sleeping (this will come after another sleepTime milliseconds, so you need to wait)

Now press Ctrl C - the Sleeping output stops coming and won't come after sleepTime milliseconds. This means that the thread was terminated.

                  System.out.println("Weather is"+cities[i]+","+country[i]+"\n"+weather);
                  i++;
                  if(i>5)
                        i=0;
                  try {
