This should get you started.

You need to work out the data you want and create XPath expressions to get to it.
<%
Dim httpReq, xmlDoc, locationName
 
' Create the http reqiest object. you may want to use a different version
Set httpReq = Server.CreateObject("MSXML2.ServerXMLHTTP.4.0") 
 
' Create the request
Call httpReq.Open("GET", "http://www.yr.no/sted/Sverige/V%C3%A4stmanland/Kungs%C3%B6rs_Kommun/varsel.xml" , False) 
 
' send the request
httpReq.Send
 
' read the response into an XML document
Set responseDoc = httpReq.ResponseXML
 
' Read in some data using XPath syntax
locationName = responseDoc.SelectSingleNode("weatherdata/location/name").Text
 
' Display the data
Response.Write locationName
%>
