Showing multiple lines on a ThingSpeak plot required the creation of an array. Now that the Visualization functions a deprecated, its actually much easier to plot multiple lines using the MATLAB plot function. In response to some user feedback (thanks), here is an update to the example for plotting three days of temperature from the MathWorks weatherstation.

% Channel ID to read data from
readChannelID = 12397;
% Temperature Field ID
myFieldID = 4;
% One day date range
oneDay = [datetime('yesterday') datetime('today')];
readAPIKey = '';

temperatureDay1 = thingSpeakRead(readChannelID,'Fields',myFieldID, ...
'dateRange', oneDay, 'ReadKey',readAPIKey);
temperatureDay2 = thingSpeakRead(readChannelID,'Fields',myFieldID, ...
temperatureDay3 = thingSpeakRead(readChannelID,'Fields',myFieldID, ...
'dateRange', oneDay-days(2),'ReadKey',readAPIKey);

% Create array of durations
myTimes1 = minutes(1:length(temperatureDay1));
myTimes2 = minutes(1:length(temperatureDay2));
myTimes3 = minutes(1:length(temperatureDay3));

% Visualize the data
plot(myTimes1,temperatureDay1, myTimes2,temperatureDay2, myTimes3, temperatureDay3);
ylabel('Temperature F');
title('3-Day Temperature Comparison');
