After looking through the code to find where it pulls weather data
from, you will see that the msnbc page
(where <yourlocale> is determined from accid.dat) is what appears to
be on the fritz.  The mythweather code is doing what it should be
doing, parsing out the information it is given.  Could the problem be
that msnbc is getting hammered with weather requests and skewing the
data intentionally?  Who knows...
