The Gnome weather report applet has ceased working on CentOS5/6. http://weather.noaa.gov/ says "This service is no longer available". Are there any good alternatives? I liked the applet as it allowed the use of a custom radar map.

As I just discovered, the weather functionality of the CentOS6 Gnome clock applet was using the same service.
