ideas needed for replacing weather gadget

I've used the windows weather gadget to display current temperatures from selected cities.
But, the server connection is no longer working and with gadgets being a general "no no" for security reasons, I'm looking for something that:

  • uses only a small space on the desktop
  • launches on startup
  • displays current temperatures for any number of cities (and maybe other things, but this for sure)

ideas/suggestions?

I downloaded this when my weather gadget broke. You can customize it to show less details.

Hi Newmarket2, I had the same problem and I use this one now. Looks and acts the same as the default weather gadget.
This one works without issue.
