Here's a quick tutorial on how to get the weather icon next to your posts - you know, the one that looks like this:

Frequently Asked Questions About the Weather Icon:

Where does it come from? The Weather Icon is one of many different sizes of NetWeather, our free weather product for your website, blog, or MySpace page.

Where does the weather on it come from? Why is it not as accurate as "x"? The weather and temperature come from AccuWeather.com's current conditions database, and it is meant to give viewers a general idea of the weather at your location. Because this database relies on government stations for the most part (which are widely spaced and update infrequently), and is a database "snapshot" of this data updated once per hour, conditions may not match your local reporting station and certainly a real-time your backyard weather station. We are looking to improve that in the future.
