PLEASE READ THIS!
In this short video review, you can see how is simple to change settings, and how to change the location manually, if for some reason automatically location is obtained wrongly:
As you already know, wxdata.weather.com/ as a weather source doesn’t work anymore.
And because of that, I decided to make one small weather skin as an alternative for personal use.
This skin uses old good Yahoo as a weather provider.
How does this alternative work?
First of all, weather locations will be automatically obtained. Also, if for some reason location is wrong, you can always find and edit the location manually.
This alternative, don’t use Foreca, AccuWeather, DarkSky, ClimaCell, Weatherbit, Open Weather Map, The Weather Channel, Wttr.in, Weather2umbrella, and so on.
You don’t need to make an account to use this alternative. You don’t need to have your own API key. You are not limited to 100 or more calls per day.
Everything is free and simple.
Thanks go to jsmorley for the color picker RainRGB4!

Yes, the Weather Alternative rainmeter theme does support Spotify however you won’t be able to see the progress of the song. Only the buttons (stop, pause, skip) and song name will work.
