In your controller:

// Pass the API a timezone offset, and all dates are adjusted accordingly!
  .then(function(results) {
      $scope.rain =              // Rain, in mm
      $ =                      // Current Kp
      $scope.moonrise =      // Moonrise

In your view:

<p>There is currently {{ rain }}mm of rain and the Kp is at {{ kp }}</p>
