[olug] Replacing the Weather Bug

The "kitchen computer" has officially been replaced, and is now running SuSE 
9.3 running KDE.  Outside of the grumbling about having to login, I've had 
few complaints.  I do see one heading down the road, though.  
My wife runs the "weather bug" utility on her PC at work, and we used to run 
it on the former kitchen computer.  I need something that will pull weather 
data from NWS in Omaha, and display it prettily on the system tray.  I've 
seen a weather component in Kontact, but the data it shows is pretty limited.  
Anybody seen a "weather bug" replacement for linux?
