Attracted by the minimal clean looks of the Metro UI, I cooked up this clock and weather widget.

Not really that customizable compared to P4HUDEX but there are some options to tinker with.

Double-click on the clock area to call up the Settings panel.


--INSTALLATION---------------------------------
Execute the rmskin file to install.

If you are using a portable Rainmeter installation, you can use SkinInstaller.exe to install the rmskin file.
SkinInstaller.exe should be at "[PortableInstallDirectory]Rainmeter".

More on adding Rainmeter skins here rainmeter.net/cms/Rainmeter101…


--NOTES---------------------------------
- Take care not to click on the Apply button continuously as it may cause the weather site to go defensive, close and restart Rainmeter if that happens.


--CREDITS---------------------------------
Creation: iron2000
Weather icons: LavAna
Weather data: WXData (Weather.com)


--CHANGELOG---------------------------------
v1.3 (26 Mar 2016)
- changed weather data to the WXData feed from Weather.com as Yahoo is restricting their API.

- changed/updated help pages URLs in settings

v1.21 (7 Apr 2013)
- changes in the code.

v1.20 (7 Apr 2013)

I couldn't change the Location ID from SNXX0006 to others. How can I solve this problem?

Um, the settings menu isn't coming up when I double click on the clock area of the skin. -_-

Does work on my side.
Maybe you can try clicking on the white font?
But I made sure it works on the transparent area too as its not really transparent.

Another way to access Settings is via the right-click menu on the widget, under Minimet->Settings.

Pretty cool, but way too big for a small desktop like mine x)
