In SharePoint 2010, how do I find a user's Active Directory "Office Location" value using jQuery, XML, scripting or inline code?

In SharePoint 2010, I need to script/create a Case Statement that will return a user's "Office Location" AD field value.  Is this possible using jQuery or XML?  Perhaps using AJAX.

This is for displaying weather conditions for various locations.  I have a jQuery script that will show the weather for a specific city based on a numeric value.  Since I know the 18 citiy locations, I want to use a case statement (or something similar) and pass on the correct value depending on the user's AD location information.  

I have the User Profile Service Application configured and running correctly.

I would like to get one weather report ( based on the user's location ) like the link below (but just one result) by passing the correct information to a case statement from the user's AD info.

at first you need to be sure that you have mapped AD "Office Location" field to SharePoint profile property in UPS.
for the rest - please use the answer from that forum: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sharepoint2010programming/thread/8b432442-427b-4fd0-bcaf-8c89a952571c
