A Google search pulls up a few good protocol descriptions and most text processing languages (perl, python, php, etc) have standardized libraries to parse it. METAR is a syndication protocol - the actual data can be read directly off the units (pilots do this when landing) using a VHF decoder, as they broadcast their data. Different units have slightly different protocols -- there have been three or four different standards over the years. Do a couple searches or ask a pilot or meterologist... the information is very open and available.
