Purpose: Myth Weather is a module for the MythTV project with the purpose of displaying the local weather

Features: Myth Weather has 4 user screens and 1 setup screen.

User Screens:

Three-Day Forcast An icon representation of the overall weather for the day (and a text description), along with an average temperature for the day.
Weather Map This is downloaded on-the-fly from The Weather Channel's website, at least in the US.
Current Conditions This is a screen with a text description of the current weather conditions, fit into a template. A weather mad-lib, if you will.
Area Radar This is also courtesy of the Weather Channel (again, for USAdians).

Setup Screen:

Here you can choose Celsius or Imperial temperature scales, as well as your local city. After selecting all of your setup options, press 'I' to store them.

Usage:

Myth Weather will slideshow among the three main screens every 5 seconds or so without user intervention. The <- and -> arrows on your keyboard or key-bound remote control will move you to the previous or next screens, respectively. Pause will stop the slideshow, and a subsequent press will resume operation.
While watching Myth Weather, you can use the number keys on your keyboard or key-bound remote control to enter a valid US zipcode. This will temporarily change the selected city. This feature is especially useful for the frequent traveller who wants to know the weather at his or her destination.
