Suggest you rethink this a little bit.  My first recommendation would be to contact the MinnPost publishers and ask them to give you the code that they use.  EE is a good place to get questions answered, not so good to get people to work for you for free.  If you have budget for a project like this you might consider ELance or a similar resource where you can hire a professional programmer.

My second recommendation would be to look carefully at the web page output.  The page talks about Minnesota, but the weather report it produced is Oakton, VA.  It's probably using some kind of IP-to-Location data source.  That may or may not be what you really need.

You may not have found all of the answer :-)

Looks like you're still publishing the weather in Oakton, VA.
