Didn't know about this one.  A quick "lynx -dump" alias seems to do
the trick:

  alias weather='lynx -dump ""'

seems to do the trick as long as you update the query to your
preferred zip-code or other acceptable query.

If you don't care about the details like phase of moon, and links at
the bottom, you can pipe it to sed or head:

  alias weather='lynx -dump "" | sed /Updated/q'


  alias weather='lynx -dump "" | head'

One could wrap it in a function to take the search parameters on the
command-line, but I'm usually only interested in the weather fairly
locally most of the time.
