There is also Yahoo, which uses The Weather Channel. Their official 
interface is documented at http://developer.yahoo.com/weather/ This 
returns a three day forecast. However, there is an undocumented 
interface that returns a five day forecast. See 
http://xml.weather.yahoo.com/forecastrss/UKXX0718_c.xml for an example 

I have a python script that uses the undocumented interface, which I'll 
put on Github when I have tidied it up a bit. It doesn't look too hard 
to adapt the current googleweather.el script to use Yahoo.
