mythweather:time not localised.

Description

As of 0.22, mythweather displays six 3-hours periods in the 18-hour forecast. Each period is labeled with a timestamp like '4 PM'

This is actually problematic for me, and also many other over here. We are used to 24 hours clock, and each time I see a PM/AM I need to doublecheck what it means.

Time should be presented in user's locale, as weekday already is in the 3-days/6-days forecast IMHO. I don't really see a need for a user preference, using the standards locale stuff should be sufficient(?).

This might or might not affect the grabber interface. In the long run, it means that myth needs to parse the data instead of displaying it as-is. Parsing is much simpler if the time value becomes more specified, not just a string as today.

Feature request without patch. Alec, tickets aren't the right place for ideas on how to improve things, these really need patches to be considered at all. We appreciate the zeal to improve things, but we don't track feature requests here.
