You could do it using an external function library via Vensim DSS. This would involve writing the code to read the data.

Depends what you mean by "connect." There are multiple ways to use data in Vensim, and many online climate sources. If you want to scrape data off the web, you'll probably have to write some custom code, but you'd have to tell us more about your use case for advice about how to get it into Vensim. I doubt an external function would be needed.
