Well, this is the easiest way ; using something like:*weather*
to exclude all links at which contains the 
work "weather" in the URL

You can also wipe all default filters (+*.gif +*.jpg and so 
on) which tend to get many banner and other useless ads

And you can even use "strict filters", that is, exclusing 
everything, and then accept links per links (or family per 
family) what you want to download:
