These are suggestions that I've already decided to leave for other people.
- Allow people to look up their local weather via a form, by zip code or city and state. The NOAA, Weather.COM, and a bunch of other sites already do this, and I don't think there's a need for another site that has this function. If you want to do it on your site, you'll need these feeds, a city/state to zip to lat/long association database, and a book on great circle arithmetic. Go to town.
You're probably wondering where all the XML files are. They're here
