Comment(by maverik044):

 The "reliable source" (I believe) is
 http://xoap.weather.com/weather/local/CAXX0301?cc=*&unit=F&dayf=4&.  I'm
 working on a patch. I hope to have something out soon.  Most other
 software uses this as the source. The mythtv owners may need to sign up
 for a partner id though.

 Another common source of data is the US METAR system (aviation) NOAA which
 does appear to offer international data.  Problem with this as a source is
 that I don't believe that the existing city identifiers coded into myth
 (ie. CAXX0301) can be used.  They use the airport identifiers instead.  So
 more of the myth code may have to be changed.  With the weather.com
 source, we don't need to change this.
