How can I get the HTC Home weather for my city?

I've already done searches for this, but I just haven't found a simple answer for a newbie like me.

What I want is to keep the weather in the tab like it is on the stock HTC home, but I want to be able to choose my city by zip code. I'd also like to be able to get radar images.

Is there an easy way to do this?

Also, it would be really cool if there was an option to have it show weather based on your GPS location.

Thanks!

theres no "newbie" way...you have to get the file from your phone's "Windows" folder (using file explorer), get it on a real computer, and edit the file using notepad...just copy the format already there for your city, save it, and put it back where you found it in the windows folder...http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=319187

In all fairness, the search function on this site sucks. I've resorted to using google to search "forum.xda-developers.com" under advanced search.

Hey thanks for the link.

But, what I would REALLY like, that I haven't seen posted yet, is instead of having to input a city is if the weather would just update based on GPS location. Is anyone working on this? Or is there currently an available modification to the HTC home weather for this? I think that would be the cat's ass.

Thanks again!

Why you think a cat's ass is a good thing is beyond me...

I live with four cats and I avoid their asses as much as possible!
