findU does not accept weather data directly, it has to go through the  

If you modify your request to send the data directly to the APRS IS  
rather than RF, any APRS client that can connect to a weather  
station, e.g. WinAPRS, UI-View, xastir, or any Citizen's Weather  
client, e.g. Weather Display and many others, do exactly that  
already. I do not know of any extremely lightweight code to do this,  
as some accumulation is needed to convert the rain gauge data to the  
three APRS formats (1 hr, 24 hr, and MN) as well as gust and average  
wind speed. No reason it couldn't be done, I'd love to see it.
