For anyone else who is interested, I also wanted to have weather
displayed on my screen. Thanks to others on this site, I found that the
local news station did have static URLs for the daily/local weather, so
I could just add those to a media tile, and it worked fine.
the images had a lot of unused space, and on the tablet was hard to
see. I also then found I didn't want a lot of the extra data, and
decided to poke around. I ended up writing a script that copies the
images down locally, then crops the images, and for one of them combines
two images into a single image.
complex than some people may want, but for those of you who like to
tinker and hack at what we can do, you will probably appreciate it.

and if you want the script straight out, you can get it here: https://www.sleepyweim.com/2019/06/01/python-fetch-weather-for-actiontiles/
