indian weather command line tool

Inspired by http://fungi.yuggoth.org/weather, I made a small command line tool to show the weather from a given automatic weather station (AWS) in India.

While fungi’s weather parses US METAR data, such data is usually only available for airports in India. But the IMD has a nice Google maps-enabled page which shows the weather from the different AWS. The data is available as a CSV file with the weather encoded in SYNOP format, which this tool decodes and shows on the terminal.

The code is available at http://github.com/abhidg/inwthr.
