This is interesting.  Neal, do you know of any way to do a similar automated
retrieval of the weather data for the previous 24 hours instead of the
forecast, i.e. temperature min, max and mean and perhaps the precipitation

Dear Statalist Members,

Thanks to Kit Baum, a new Stata package -weathr- is now available for
download from SSC:

. ssc install weathr
. findit weathr

Weathr (note the missing second "e") retrieves the current weather
conditions and the forecast for the next 36 hours from Yahoo! Weather
for one or more US zip codes. It requires a connection to the
internet. For example:

. weathr 27599

Chapel Hill, NC at 10:15 am EST
Light Rain, 34 F. Forecast: Fri-Rain. High: 38 Low: 35. Sat-AM
Showers. High: 53 Low: 28.
