Which weather plugin do you have? There was a great one from Kevin Walsh a
while back that handled XML. There is also the RSSCruzer plugin for parsing
XML/RSS feeds. The television plugin also parses XML. Those are all examples,
and you'd have to tweak them to fit the framework of your weather XML.

There is also a document on some basic of creating plugins included in the help
section of the server.
