The patch is incomplete. The Mate guys didn't patch this file. Run tcpdump
and verify it's trying query www.weather.gov/forecasts.

# pwd
# grep http * |grep forecast
weather-iwin.c:        /* see the description here: http://www.weather.gov/forecasts/xml/ */
weather-iwin.c:            url = g_strdup_printf ("http://www.weather.gov/forecasts/xml/sample_products/browser_interface/ndfdBrowserClientByDay.php?&lat=%.02f&lon=%.02f&format=24+hourly&startDate=%04d-%02d-%02d&numDays=7",
weather-iwin.c:    url = g_strdup_printf ("http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/forecasts/zone/%s/%s.txt", state, zone);
