There is an MSNBC Weather Web Part in the online gallery. However, I
suggest that everyone turn off the online gallery for every Virtual
Server that they create, so you may not be able to see it.

Once you've added the Web Part to the page you can export it. Just in
case you don't have access to it, I've attached the Dashboard Web Part
(DWP) to this post.

Import the DWP into your Team Site Gallery and drag it onto any Web Part

Be careful with the server overhead of weather  webparts. Test, Test, Test and
measure performance
with different numbers of users.
I saw one with a radar scan set with frequent updates that was a serious
resource hog.

I actually can't see the business justification for a weather  Web Part
but it is an oft-requested component. Go figure.
