CurseTheWeather is a python application which displays the weather in a 
terminal via a ncurses frontend (ctw). This frontend shows ascii-art weather
icons along with the current weather conditions and 5 day forecast. is the python module that grabs the weather data from, and it can used by frontends other than ctw.

** Please note ** CTW does not currently display a full 10 day forecast
due to changes with

** ctw and Transparency, Different Colors **

To modify transparency and color behavior in ctw simply modify
initColors() in /usr/bin/ctw.

To remove transparency, simply delete:
at line 125 (just under "curses.start_color()").

Modifying the lines with "curses.init_pair" will allow you to modify the text
colors used.
