The new mythweather supports 7 screens:
Current Conditions
18 Hour Forecast
3 Day Forecast
6 Day Forecast
Static Weather Map (Generic, could be anything)
Animated Weather Map (Could be used for animated radar)
Severe Weather Warnings

Of course more screens could be added, they would probably need to be 
justified and generic enough that they could be used by other scripts. I 
don't think adding a screen for a "3 3/4" hour forecast would be accepted!

It would be nice to make the existing screens even more generic so that the 
forecast page could be used for any period of time, with the script 
determining what it is called. E.g. In the US it would be the 18 hour 
forecast and in the UK the 24 hour forecast. The 6 day could be the 5 day etc
