Given data/time and geo location, how can I find the weather worldwide? Is there a Web service for that?

weatherbug.com seems to be US only

http://www.wunderground.com/ is a wonderful source of weather data, both current and past.

You can enter lat/long in the location search box (although that is not mentioned)

http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/hdfForecast?query=51.4,-2.6

There is an API - no API key required but no mobile or commercial use

http://wiki.wunderground.com/index.php/API_-_XML

To do a station lookup:

http://api.wunderground.com/auto/wui/geo/GeoLookupXML/index.xml?query=51.4,-2.6

from which you can select an appropriate station (or webcam)

Current weather conditions for an airport (via ICAO airport code - Bristol)

http://api.wunderground.com/auto/wui/geo/WXCurrentObXML/index.xml?query=EGGD

or an amateur weather station

http://api.wunderground.com/weatherstation/WXCurrentObXML.asp?ID=IBRISTOL3

and forecasts

http://api.wunderground.com/auto/wui/geo/ForecastXML/index.xml?query=Bristol,%20UK

Historic METAR reports are also available.

You can try The Weather Channel and Geonames. The Geonames web service for weather is here.

This is a link to another index contains only a link to yet another index (datamob.org) which points to the wunderground API documentation refered to in an answer above.
