How to get information from a website using HTTP and XML or SOAP protocol

Here is my code for Client/Server application where upon connecting the server sends the weather information to client window.But, Can any one make changes so that client application will connect to National weather service website (http://weather.gov/xml) using SOAP or HTTP and XML and display weather conditions.Here my code accpets a zip code but, in the  new application I want to give longitute and latitude as inputs to retrieve the weather information and in my code values are refreshed for 5 sec. I want to add a manual refresh button. So, that when refreshed the values are refreshed in the client window. And also in the client window it should display that XML or SOAP is used in the retrieving process.The four variables in display on client side may be(Max Temperature, Min Temperature,Cloud cover ammount, 12 Hr probability of precipitation, Dewpoint, Wind speed, Wind direction, Wave height).Can anybody make changes to my code. So, that the application runs according to the specification.I would really appreciate, if any one can help me with this.
