The short and sweet answer is that mythweather is broken. It is 
unchanged from 0.18 and stopped working a long time ago. If you live in 
the usa and want a working weather module download and compile the 
mythweather-revamp branch of SVN and use it. That works except for the 
animated map which is supposed to be enableable but so far will not work 
for me. The weather page of mythweb does work correctly.
