No, it doesn't. My weather skin (which uses weather.com), works perfectly.
First of all, try to restart Rainmeter. I mean, restart it completely. Right click its Notification Area icon and click Exit. Then restart it. Does the skin work now?

Hi balala, I checked the log and found some error 'RegExp matching error (-1)'. So, I reinstalled the skin and it started working again :D

Have you tried restarting Rainmeter, as I said? Because usually if there is something wrong and you're reinstalling the skin, this is in vain. I never saw this to help. However, when you've reinstalled the skin, you've also restarted Rainmeter, so I'd be curious what helped, the reinstall or the restart of Rainmeter.
But finally I'm glad if you got it working.

Hi, it still wasn't working after I restarted Rainmeter like you adviced, so I checked the log and found the error and only after that did I reinstall the skin. I deleted the older installation folder before reinstalling the skin.

Which skin are we talking about? If reinstalling it fixed the problem, I'd suppose there is some included file, which was deleted or modified accidentally and this caused the issue. Just a supposition and I'd like to know the incriminated skin to check if it indeed has included files, which would cause that problem.
But it's good if you got it working.

It's this skin by eclectic 'https://www.deviantart.com/eclectic-tech/art/Win10-Weather-780236969'. It's working fine now.

Yes, all skins of this package are including the Weather-ExtraLarge.ini skin, present in the same package. If you've loaded any other skin (for example Weather-Large.ini or Weather-Medium.ini) and the Weather-ExtraLarge.ini got corrupted before, nor the loaded skin didn't work anymore.
I suppose this happened. When you've reinstalled the package, the corrupted file was rewritten and due to this, all skins have started to work again.
Not sure this has happend, but this is my assumption.
But if finally you got it working, I suppose this doesn't matter much any more.
