Show a one-line weather forecast on the desktop

I use a perl script to pull the same xml file that the apple weather widget pulls from weather.com. I then parse this and use the images from the weather widget and paste that on my desktop with geektool. I also used imagemagick to composite images together (clouds over different moon phases).

That's a lot of effort to go to when you could just drop the widget on your desktop.

This sounds great (and much more versatile and attractive than a weather widget), would you mind sharing your methods?
