Here's a quick-and-dirty hack to work around Google's inability to make
up its mind about what it will return: a path or a complete URL? The
hack assumes that the value-du-jour is a path, so if tomorrow Google changes
its mind, you may have to revert:

diff --git a/google-weather.el b/google-weather.el
index fad9ed7..f59b1bf 100644
--- a/google-weather.el
+++ b/google-weather.el
@@ -172,7 +172,7 @@ See `google-weather-retrieve-data' for the use of 
            (low ,(google-weather-assoc 'low forecast))
            (high ,(google-weather-assoc 'high forecast))
-           (icon ,(google-weather-assoc 'icon forecast))
+           (icon ,(concat "https://www.google.com"; (google-weather-assoc 'icon 
            (condition ,(google-weather-assoc 'condition forecast)))))
      (loop for entry in (google-weather-data->weather data)
            when (eq (car entry) 'forecast_conditions)

With this, I get the usual 4-day org-google-weather forecast in my agenda,
except that cached images still don't work.
