Steampunk Weather Widget is a beautiful Yahoo Widget designed to display weather data for a certain location.
Steampunk Weather Widget displays local air pressure, temperature and humidity, as well as the general weather outlook in hundreds of cities around the world.
Steampunk Weather Widget currently uses a Weather feed from : http://vremea.meteoromania.ro to obtain weather information. The default location is London Heathrow. It can be easily changed to a weather feed near you.
Why is this feed needed? The answer is that the weather information (Metar data) is provided by various organisations throughout the world by airports, weather stations &c. If there is Metar data feed near you and the widget can find it then your local weather will be displayed dynamically.
