You might want to contact Dr. Ray Russell here at Appstate. Ray is in the Computer Science department here and has done work for NASA also. He has this obsession, oops I mean hobby, for collecting weather data. He has weather stations throughout the High Country ( western North Carolina ) and a WEB site
that several people have relied on. I know at one time he had code you could embed in your WEB page, I don't know now. He has been working on this project for several years and probably still expanding his coverage a little at a time. You can tell him I suggested you contact him but I don't think that will get you anywhere ;-) . I had experience with some data that he accessed when taking databases, and advance databases courses under him and in a Java course taught by another instructor. He might be able to give you a quick and easy solution.
