Looks like there's no more HTTP access to metar files. In fact, the Metar pages
themselves have been redesigned and it looks like FTP access is the way to go now. 
(That
would also explain why the server has been flaky this past week). 

http://weather.noaa.gov/weather/metar.shtml

In phpweather.inc, the line is for accessing the server is 

"http://weather.noaa.gov/pub/data/observations/metar/stations/$station.TXT"

Using that URL now returns an error. Problem is, it looks like guest privelges have
not been set yet for the FTP server, or else the server is overloaded, because I get
a "can't set guest privileges" error. 

I wish they had given us some notice.
