Importing XML from National Weather Service (NWS)
Has anyone had any success at importing XML from the National Weather Service??
The NWS has been creating XML source for their weather forecasts for some time now. (See http://forecast.weather.gov/MapClick.php?CityName=Blairsville&state=GA&site=FFC&textField1=34.8736&textField2=-83.9516 for example)
I would like to be able to import this forecast information into fields. From there, I want to use that information to create content for a digital signage project. I have no difficulty with the latter aspect, however, I just don't know much about importing from an XML source.
Thanks for any assistance you might be able to provide.

An excellent example file exists (with the demo download of the plugin) at...
The plugin is well documented and (fairly) easy to get your head around. See the 'SmartPill PHP Examples.fp7' file included. Has an example doing exactly as you described.
