I have pushed my python script to 

This shows how to retrieve the five day forecast from Yahoo, with an 
example XML page of the results returned by Yahoo. As an added benefit 
Yahoo also returns the lat, long, sunrise and sunset data. For people in 
the UK, there is a complete list of all location codes for towns and cities.

I have also included a copy of Julien Danjou's original library for 
Google in the repo. As a first step I renamed all occurrences of Google 
to Yahoo. Other than that it doesn't do anything useful yet.

Since my elisp skills are very limited, if anyone else wants to hack on 
this too, I would be more than happy to merge your changes.
