ESP8266 and Si7021 temperature sensor example

The  Si7021  I2C Humidity  and  Temperature  Sensor  is  a  monolithic  CMOS  IC integrating   humidity   and   temperature   sensor   elements,   an   analog-to-digital converter, signal processing, calibration data, and an I2C Interface. The Si7021 offers an accurate, low-power, factory-calibrated digital solution ideal for measuring humidity, dew-point, and temperature, in applications ranging from HVAC/R and asset tracking to industrial and consumer platforms.

Testing

Open the serial monitor and you should see soemthing like this

Humidity : 50.55 % RH
Celsius : 22.20 C
Fahrenheit : 71.96 F
Humidity : 50.54 % RH
Celsius : 22.19 C
Fahrenheit : 71.94 F
Humidity : 50.96 % RH
Celsius : 26.13 C
Fahrenheit : 79.04 F
Humidity : 51.84 % RH
Celsius : 27.84 C
Fahrenheit : 82.11 F
Humidity : 53.12 % RH
Celsius : 27.97 C
Fahrenheit : 82.34 F
