AFAIK, it can't be fixed. MythWeather get it's from 
http://www.msnbc.com/m/chnk/d/weather_d_src.asp?acid=... URL (in my case 
  full URL 
http://www.msnbc.com/m/chnk/d/weather_d_src.asp?acid=RSXX0063). As I can 
see this data randomly changed. I'll try get few and get data on 
different days!!! Data format is hard coded in MythWeather and can't be 
easy changed. Only one solution exists: try to use weather-revamp 
branch. But it work only for USA as I know.
