Weather info as iChat status message?

I’m interested in creating an applescript that pulls local weather information from my SunlitEarth widget and displays it as my message status in iChat.

I have lots of friends in other states/countries, and they invariably ask “what’s the weather like?” whenever we start to chat. Displaying it as a status message would be terrific. Anyone know how to pull info from a widget for display in iChat?

Alternately, I could pull the info from a weather site, wich would probably be more widely usable, since earlier versions of the Mac OS could use it.
