How’s the Weather?

Using a slick Movabletype plugin, I’ve implemented a current weather conditions report, visible on the side navigation of this site. The weather for any number of sites may be listed and I’ve chosen 3 sites: home in San Jose; family in Salina, KS and Bristol, UK, where I’ve got colleagues and friends.

I’m still playing around with the formatting, and will probably move the display from the left side over to the right (where most dynamic content resides), but wanted to share once I had it up and running reliably. By that I mean that it’s now automatically updated, once an hour, using the system’s cron(1) capabilities and a little script I threw together.
