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

%>
