Weather Forecast Program

I am in the planning process of a project I would like to create. It's a weather forecast program. When you launch it for the first time, it would prompt you for your zip code. After that, the program will launch the weather for the day or week, w/e you pick.

I was wondering though, how would I be able to get the forecast. I know I would have to get it through a website, but does anyone have a web source where I could easily extract the current weather condition? I was thinking about an RSS feed but I am not really good with the XML packages in Java.

Anyone have any suggestions?
I would love to change the world, but they won't give me the source code!

Try Here for a free web service.

All you have to do is implement it into your program using java. The site listed is full of free services, just find a weather one. Here's the C# source I was looking at which is how I found the first site. Should be easy to convert to Java. If you want to look for a different service, just google free weather services or something. It's not exactly populated with free weather services, but you might find an odd one or teo.
