cs.portlet.aemet is a Plone product that creates a portlet to show weather information as provided by AEMET.
It parses an XML file and creates a data structure to create a portlet based on a structure similar to the one provided by the product Meteo. This product worked great, but due to the constantly changing HTML of the AEMET site, it failed easily.
Now AEMET provides a fixed XML for each place, so you just have to create a portlet and type the URL of the XML file you want to show. The parsing results are cached in memory using plone.memoize's RAMCache.
If you want to customize the look and feel of the portlet, use z3c.jbot and look at the internals of the dict created after parsing the XML at aemetparser.py file.
You can see examples of customization of this portlet at:

Tested on Plone 4.0.x and 4.1. Not tested on Plone 3.3.x but it should work.
