I use PYWWS to read from my weatherstation, which is similar to yours, 
and it includes a built-in script to convert its internal format to 
APRS. Runs on Linux and there's a bit of scripting involved to glue them 
together, but it's not too hard.

The APRS spec (being American) specifies weather beacons should be in 
imperial/US customary units. Part of the changes I had to make to PYWWS 
was to de-metricify the weather data before beaconing it.
