Any know of any good places to get weather reports, and process it server-side so that I can manipulate it and display it how I want on my site? I know of services that exist with Weather.com and weatherunderground, however they have advertisements that promote and link back to their own site.

I guess basically what I am looking for it some sort of weather "feed", I've done some searches but can't find exactly what I'm looking for.

Any suggestions?

You can try All Headline News or accuweather.com

Check out openrico.org They have a pretty cool little widget that will do exactly what you want.

If you're interested in U.S. weather and know something about XML and SOAP you might be able to get a feed from the National Weather Service [weather.gov]. I don't understand half of the words so can't vouch for anything.

You might also want to check HamWeather. Not exactly a feed, but can be customized to suit your needs.
