Lynn, others ...

I have checked those links. As I understood, at first wxnow.txt file 
must be created. And it will only contain these 2 lines after the 
weather monitoring starts for the first time. So it only contains one 
data set. And if I want to get permanently updated data, does a new file 
has to be created with every new data? Or is the file permanently 
overwritten? Or is the new data appended?
