Setting up a local weather IE8 web slice

The IE8 add-on directory offers a weather web-slice, but only for the Seattle, WA area.  So, how do you setup a web-slice for your local weather?

Jump out to Search and enter your city and the word “weather” (with quotes).  The result will look something like the following:


When you hover over the weather component in the Search resulting page with your mouse cursor, you’ll notice that a green feed button appears.  Left-click on the green feed button and IE8 will ask if you want to subscribe to the new web-slice.


Once the new weather component is installed, you’ll have a new IE8 toolbar button which you can click to view the current, local weather conditions.
