We have a script for that we've
used for years.
I have no idea who originally wrote it, or I'd gladly give them credit.
There's also another script floating around that uses lynx -dump.  It
was written by Kitty Litter from the Speakup list, and has a couple more
features than this one.  Notably, the command line options can be
pre-populated from an environment variable (useful if you normally get
the weather for a single location).  There's also a moon-phase option,
and I don't recall what else.
I don't know whether he ever intended to publish it.
