We are looking for a reliable "current weather" web service for Europe, with city resolution. We only need the current weather.

Since it is for a commercial web site, we don't mind paying a reasonable fee for the service.

What are our options? What service would you recommend or avoid based on previous experience?

Note: SOAP Web Service, XML RPC, REST, all are fine.


You should be able to interface with Yahoo weather Europe like the team of the weather plasmoid did. Or if you only need to add it to a web page you could use directly this gadget
