Try this http://www.weatherzone.com.au/about/freeweather.jsp
If you're not in Australia I believe WNI, AccuWeather and Custom Weather do allow a similar feed based.

Is there anything that tells me just the temp. And conditions, like in GeekTools. Then I could make a js or php script to put the proper weather conditions image in place. How does GeekTools ONLY show those two things from that entire webpage?

Yes. Visit here (http://www.programmableweb.com/api/noaa-weather-service) to see various API's where you can pull specific data fields from their database and do with it as you please. This is a little more complex to setup than a mashup (also listed on that page, need to check 'em out to see if one does what you want)
API = Advanced Programming Interface - i.e. SOAP/RSS or XML-RPC - you code sends commands to the remote server, processed, and the remote server sends data back to your code, you process and display it.
