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?

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.
