It looks like xenium just updated it today, Jan 11th, so check his deviantArt page and see that you have the latest version.
I tried a few different cities and it seems to work OK for me with the new update.

For foreca, first try https://www.foreca.com/ without any additional city information, that also seems to work. Else try searching for your city and use that URL. If after that it doesn't work send a post in the main skin topic.

I recently moved to this weather skin after having trouble with the Yahoo-based weather skin, and now it seems to be having problems. I've tried completely restarting rainmeter, but it hasn't helped. Interestingly enough, the future days seems to work fine, but the current day doesn't seem to be getting any data. I did verify that the location is correct and when I go to the website it has valid weather data. Here is what the skin is currently displaying:

The problem started over the weekend and I'm seeing it on multiple computers I have at home. Any idea what could be the problem?
When you have problems with the weather skin, first check the skin page on DeviantArt to see if there are any recent updates.
Also, any questions about the skin, it is good to be posted on the skin page, because the creator of the skin is best able to answer you.

It does work for me:

Make sure you've restarted Rainmeter. I know you said you did, but make sure you've indeed completely restarted it. Right click the Rainmeter icon in the Notification Area and click Exit, then restart it from the Start menu. If still doesn't work, try changing the location, through the settings.
Does it work after a new restart or changing the location?

Thanks for the suggestions. I had done exactly what you described when I restarted Rainmeter. I also had tried changing the location and it still didn't work.

I'm going to try updating the skin to the latest version, as mentioned. Sorry I didn't check there first. Not sure why I didn't think of that :???:

If you are using an old version of the skin, it probably explains why it doesn't work. Try updating it and let us know if the new version does work.

Just updated to the latest skin and it is working well! Thanks xenium, love that skin.

I'll try to make sure to check the skin page first next time. Thanks for all the help everyone.

Do so, because weather skins many times stop working, due to changes to the source sites and in such cases the update / upgrade is the only possible solution (if it's available).
