This is just a note to self about how to obtain the Metar and Taf messages from IPPC.no with a simple url, and not have to go through the map or form pages. I have used this with the Page Scraper widget running on Yahoo Widget Engine, but it can of course also be used to post weather data onto web sites.

How to retrieve METAR and TAF from IPPC:
http://www.ippc.no/ippc/showbriefing.jsp?Met=Yes
&Metar=Yes&NotamVFR=Yes&Taf=Yes&FIR1=&AED1=ENGM

Example of Metar / Taf from Gardermoen Airport, Norway:

>>> ENGM (OSLO/GARDERMOEN) <<<
