Question (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?

Calibre 0.6.5.2, Win7, Kindle2

Thanks!

Calibre Weather

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:
Code:
class AdvancedUserRecipe1367658633(BasicNewsRecipe):
    title          = u'Weather'
    oldest_article = 1
    max_articles_per_feed = 1
    auto_cleanup = True

    feeds          = Your feed URL here...
Now all you have to do is save and download.
A bit messy towards the end, but it works for me.
