    You will need to install the DTH11 library for this program to compile and upload correctly.  It seems these files keep moving and there are several avilable, however I'll place a download link here for the .ZIP file.

    DHT11.Zip Download Link
    The install the .zip file library
    In the top menu select:  Sketch => Include Library => Add .ZIP Library
    Navigate to your "Downloads" folder and select the DHTLib.zip file that was downloaded using the link above.

    #include <LiquidCrystal.h>
    #include <DHT.h> // Sometimes you will see quotes "DHT.h" instead of braces.
    // Quotes will tell the software to include from the same program folder
    // while <> will indicate to use the "library" folder in your software
    #define DHTPIN 8 // pin DHT is connected

    LiquidCrystal lcd(A5, A4, A3, A2, A1, A0);
    #define DHTTYPE DHT11

    void setup() {
    lcd.begin(16, 2);

    void loop() {
    float h = dht.readHumidity();
    float t = dht.readTemperature();
    t = t* 9/5 + 32;
    if (isnan(t) || isnan(h)) {
    lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
    lcd.print("Failed to read from DHT");
    //Serial.println("Failed to read from DHT");
    } else {
    lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
    lcd.print("Humidity: ");
    lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
    lcd.print("Temp: ");
    lcd.print(" f");
    // Serial.print("Humidity: ");
    // Serial.print(h);
    // Serial.print(" %t");
    // Serial.print("Temperature: ");
    // Serial.print(t);
    // Serial.println(" *C");
