Refreshing just part of the page will involve frames or JavaScript (AJAX,
for example, is about refreshing parts of the page without a complete
reload). Considering the fact that both are a bloat and quite unnecessary,
I suggest you use metatags to refresh the entire page.

Wunderground used to embed the text in the image so I could snatch it but
they now (starting last month) display text on top of a background that
represents the current conditions. Have you found a workaround?
