July 29, 2020 ... All weather skins based on TWC stopped working.

We are looking at solutions.

Any post regarding the skins not working will be deleted.

THanks I'm going to try this out I love the illustro rainmeter skins, so basic yet elegant. Hopefully this works out well. FIngers crossed:weed:

best weather skin imo, tyvm for keeping it updated after multiple depreciated formats <3

illustroSimpleWeather.ini v3.2020.07.06 Work!!! Toggle Condition Icon - Thanks !!!

Whether it is possible


Automatically uses defined #Lanaguage# (i.e. en-US) to translate Month/Day names to Russian?

Sorry my English...

Edit [meterTitle] so it looks like this:















Text="#Weather# %4"

LeftMouseUpAction=!Execute [""]



ToolTipText="#ObservedAt# %3#CRLF#%2, %5 %6"

Save the file and refresh. I may add this in a future update.

Broken still. Would be nice to actually have an working weather tab in illustro. Every weather tab ive gone too is broken

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

An update is coming soon... I promise!

As others said seems to be broken still, but it is also not very clear where to set location coordinates.

seems to be broken unfortunately :(

I'm having a problem. I removed the skin in "skins" and I tried to download it again, but the problem persists, it only shows the Weather button on top and an L in the entire skin... Is it the same problem of the others in theese days?

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Changes are happening at the weather channel site, so I need that to settle down before making any changes... I should have a new version in the next week or two...

Razer40's avatar

Don't worry dude, good luck for the fix :). Thank you for your work.

I am not sure what changed but something broke this cool gizmo again... Can you please update?

Eclectic-Tech's avatar

Things at The Weather Channel site have changed... no solution yet, since it does not affect everyone. Some users are not having a problem, but apparently you and I are. I am going to wait a few days before making any changes.

Thank you. I will wait for your fix.
