International weather forecast source or API

Hello,

im looking forward for an international weather forecast information API.

Weather.com XOAP API is great, but cant use it because of their service conditions. The main problem is that we have more than 10000 users/day and they say that 25,000 active users in any given month is maximum.

Ive also tried many other paid services like HAM Weather, but they are quite expensive for us.

Has anyone a tip of a cheaper or completely free service?

wunderground is worth looking into. You'll need to search for the widget a little but its there.

Another option is to not place the weather sitewide, add it to a lesser travelled page. On some sites it helps spread the visits around too.
