Do you know how to build a basic web part? If not I suggest you learn this first. Here's a sample tutorial:

Next you want to learn how to develop against web services. Helpfully, Yahoo have a tutorial on how to deal with responses to web services as XML within C# applications: Yahoo have also documented their weather API:

Hopefully with these two fundamentals you know enough .NET development already to fill in the gaps.

You can if you abstract out the code that gets the data from the web service, and structures it. – James Love May 19 '13 at 19:03
Thanks.james.Done. but i want to ask one thing How can we Update Data of Curr. Temp in our Webart. – Harsh Bhavsar May 20 '13 at 10:11
The best way you're going to want to do this is to have as much of the functionality of this in JavaScript - the web part emits JavaScript that will call the Yahoo API, process the returned result, and replace the area on screen with your processed & formatted results. If you do it this way, you can 'schedule' the whole process using JavaScript setTimeout() method, and have it repeat after a defined amount of time. – James Love May 20 '13 at 11:18
