For the record, the SimplePerfMeters skin uses the deprecated PerfMon plugin (nowadays replaced with the newer and better UsageMonitor plugin), so maybe that's the root of the problem. Apart from that, it also uses the "old" and obsolete wxdata.weather.com source for the weather, which is nowadays replaced by directly interrogating the weather.com API (example here), so basically the skin is a bit too old and not updated to the latest "developments" in how to do various things. Contacting the author to update it, using a similar looking skin or even trying to update it on your own (difficult task, considering the skin suite's complexity and extent) are possible choices here.
