you have two options:

1) pull your weather info from a non-US site, and seeing the .au part of your 
mail domain, I'd suggest some australian site
2) modify weather.php around line 104.  My guess is that you'll need to change 
	case "Temp":
                    $this->Temperature = $value;

into this:
	case "TempCel":
                    $this->Temperature = $value;

but I suspect more changes will be necessary as well.  I was about to test 
this when I discovered msnbc.com, from which the script is hardcoded to pull 
the data, obviously refuses queries from the same host coming too 

Anyhow, there should ideally be a mythweather settings page where you can set 
such preferences.

Hope this gives you a hint in the right direction, if it doesn't help you
