The only suggestion I would make is to improve the error handling around the get. I had occasional timeouts when I tried it that didn't get reported back. Geo::METAR has problems with some of the UK data, for example, visibility is reported as a four digit number in meters rather than statute miles. But nothing that a quick hack around the code can't fix.

    Thanks for the Suggestion Odud, I updated the code to use LWP::UserAgent rather than LWP::Simple, so that the response code could be checked.

    As to the UK data problem, maybe a note to the Geo::METAR author is in order? (Or a patch)
