(Q) Calibre Fetch News -> Weather
Does anyone know how to have Calibre fetch weather (a 5 day forecast or some such) along the same lines it fetches news?

I had been wondering the same thing. The trouble is, calibre didn't take any of my rss weather feeds. All I got was an error message. I finally found a way. BBC weather seems to work: http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/.
Go there, find the location you want and then click on the rss icon under the forecast. A menu comes up, select next three days. The feed will appear. Make sure you're using IE or something similar so that the URL of the feed shows up. Then, in calibre, create a custom news source, add the URL of the rss feed and set the advanced settings to this:
class AdvancedUserRecipe1367658633(BasicNewsRecipe): title = u'Weather' oldest_article = 1 max_articles_per_feed = 1 auto_cleanup = True feeds = Your feed URL here...
A bit messy towards the end, but it works for me.
