You can tweek the below to make it even more useful, putting your zip in place of zipcode in the example variations.
alias weather='lynx -dump "https://braille.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/hdfForecast?brand=braille&query=zipcode" |grep -iA 5 $1 '
When run put "weather sunrise" for example and the part starting at "sunrise" with the following 5 lines will appear.
Or use the 3 day of the week "sun" to get the forecast info starting at that day of the week.
For dedicated sections put some label in place of $1 as a seperate named alias, temperature . will present the current weather info for
Changing the 5 will determine how many lines will be returned following the desired info.
