Metered is a nice widget with a more graphical user interface than Weathertight.Io. It has more choices for the icon styles, and it shows exactly what they look like before you click on them.
You also cannot search for a town, and the drop-down lists are not always in alphabetical order, making finding your city a bit more difficult. Type in the zip code of the town you want to display, and the page will present a sample of what the widget will look like.
Once you have made your decision, you need to copy the displayed HTML code onto your site. They group their widgets into big, lite, and small formats that will.
When you finish, click Get HTML code, and paste it into your site. If you are using WordPress and want to use a plugin to display the weather, Awesome Weathertight is one of several good choices.
It has many customization options including location, forecast days, colors, and background images. Be careful with the plugins, as many of them I looked at were no longer being updated or were not tested with the newest version of WordPress.

This is why I've compiled a roundup of my favorite offerings, and I've even taken the time to snap screenshots of the widgets in question for the latest update to this post, in order to provide everyone with a clear look of each and every widget. I've also added a new listing for today's update (Apply Weather), so if you're looking for a solid Dark Sky replacement, you're in luck.
I've also made it a point to ensure that there's something here for everyone, from the minimalist to the full-on data geek, so strap in and get ready to dig through the best weather widgets currently available on Android. As you would expect, you can choose from Celsius or Fahrenheit for your temp, and you can also set your speed units and well as a distance measuring preference.
Really, my only issue with this release is the fact that you can't remove the app's advertisements, though this hardly interferes with the title's widgets. You can expect to find seven weather widgets, and they range in size from 1×2, 2×2, and 5×2.
So if you're into theming your device, you may want to go with a weather app that offers better customization options for its widgets. To Talent Team Weather is one of the more generic apps in today's list, but I'm happy to report that it indeed offers some exceptional widgets.
Of course, the majority displays your current weather temp and conditions, though if you delve into the rest, you'll see that flip clocks, extended weather reports, not to mention the date, are all present in one form or another. Hands down 1Weather has some best weather widgets available currently, though the app's accuracy can be hit or miss when compared to the competition.
I've jumped back and forth between many weather apps over the years, and I always seem to return to AccuWeather for one reason or another. While these reports aren't perfect, I do find that AccuWeather is the most accurate app for my area.
You'll have a choice of dark or white backgrounds for the 4×1 widgets, and you can manually set the transparency, along with the refresh interval, text color, and temperature type (real feel or the standard temp). So while the widget options are limited, you can customize them a good bit to better fit with your device's theme.
CARROT Weather is easily one of the best -looking apps in our list today and is a competent replacement for Dark Sky, a gorgeous weather app that was purchased by Apple. Besides the exceptional art design of this release, the app offers an entertaining hook.
For the most part, these are simple widgets that offer the current temp, the highs and lows for the day, and of course, a snarky dose of text within the widget that makes looking at your screen a pleasure. There are also a few widgets with backgrounds that will change appearance according to your local forecast.
Window is a free weather app that contains advertisements and in-app purchases, though there is also a premium version for those with the change to spare. So if you're into theming and customization, Window Weather is a great choice.
This means you can expect a full-fledged weather app, and it offers five separate widgets. For the most part, you can't really customize these widgets, so translucent blue better be one of your favorite colors.
All in all, Weather News & Radar Maps is a solid offering, though I'm personally not a fan of the app's recurring subscription fees to remove advertisements. You can even select the levels of transparency you want to use for your background, which should appeal to all of you themes out there.
Just keep in mind that in order to test this app, you'll have to sign up for recurring fees, though you won't be charged for the first three days. Currently, Weather Underground only offers one widget, and it's 2×2 in size.
Still, if you're looking for a simple widget backed up by an app with a nice design, you could do a lot worse than Weather Underground. What's odd is that the app's widget doesn't offer anything that has to do with the radar map, and so instead, you can choose from 4 separate 1×1 widgets that cover current wind, rain, temp, and daily highs and lows.
So if you're the sort that prefers a screen that isn't busy, Radar Weather Radar is probably what you're looking for. Best of all, Apply Weather offers a clean UI that's a worthwhile replacement for the now-defunct Dark Sky.

Theme TypeDescriptionFlatThemes made exclusively with flat colors. By adjusting the opacity of the “Background” color you can show more or less of the gradient effect.
Pattern small repeating image is used as the background of these themes. Adding a “Background” color in the “Customize” tab will hide the background image but you can still add a “Background” color with a lower opacity to create a “colorize” effect over the image pattern.
Image large image is used as the background of these themes. Adding a “Background” color in the “Customize” tab will hide the background image but you can still add a “Background” color with a lower opacity to create a “colorize” effect over the image.
This displays a different background image and colors according to the current weather. Note that the rightmost column on the color picker selects the opacity.
You can also make the background, semi-transparent by lowering its opacity in order to blend and colorize whatever lies behind it. Accents is the color background for all the odd forecast day columns (i.e. 1, 3, 5, 7).
Setting this to a color (e.g. black or white) with low opacity makes it easy to blend the accent with the background color. Textile text color is used for the location labels, the current temperature, the current weather description and the day names.
