how to concatenate xml name to http file name

i am getting some help from EE to finish an asp page that displays a five day forecast
I can retrieve all thae weather data (high and low temps, as well as the day of the week and city/state)
the challenge is that I have to retrieve a graphic that represents the weather conditions (cloudy, rainy, clear, etc)

the server location of the image is

http://www.nbcweatherplus.com/sh/wxplus/icons/xhour/40x40/cloudyday.gif  < cloudy >

from this path the word "cloudy" is retrieved from the xml <icon-select>

how can I use the XML data to parse the area of the image path that changes like the examples below?
could this work to generate the correct icons?
'http://www.nbcweatherplus.com/sh/wxplus/icons/cc/40x40/' + <icon-select src="met">cloudy</icon-select>  + 'day.gif'

i've never done this, any help i can get is very much valued.
