Can orca read the weather in the top panel?

It can.  You have to go into the time preferences and set your location.
Once that is done, it will read the current temperature.  It seems to
read it every time I press alt-F1 to bring up the applications menu
right before saying applications menu.  You can also use ctrl-alt-tab to
get to the top pannel and tab around until you find it.  It's part of
the clock, so you'll get the time too.
I wonder if that info could be captured from the pannel in a script as
well?  Does anyone know how to go about querying the pannel with Python
