# weather - Expect script to get the weather (courtesy University of Michigan)
# Don Libes
# Version 1.10

# local weather is retrieved if no argument
# argument is the National Weather Service designation for an area
# I.e., WBC = Washington DC (oh yeah, that's obvious)

# Notes from Larry Virden <lvirden@yahoo.com> about the new host,
# rainmaker.wunderground.com: "[the] new site requires the
# machine doing the request be located in reverse dns lookup
# or it refuses to provide data."  This appears to be a blind error
# condition on the part of rainmaker.
