Welcome to Seven Forums gtomas007. Try this:

Control Panel> Region and Language> Location> Make sure that the settings are correct

Right click the Weather gadget> Options> Make sure the settings are the same

mine has stopped working before you but, closed and reopened the gadget or change location and that would fix it. today it recognizes no locations what so ever.

almost as if MS EOLed the weather gadgets.

MS has stopped supporting the gadgets because of alleged security issues. The ones which fail are due to IE11 security enhancements that cut them off from communicating.

A workaround is to install 8GadgetPack - Gadgets for Windows 8 / 8.1 which latest version works for Windows 7. The same gadgets which fail in 7 will still possibly fail, but there are many other choices in each category.

Other fixes and replacements are discussed in Weather widget replacement for Windows 7 - Windows 7 Help Forums

Same issue here. I've been using the Yahoo weather widget for almost 10 years, the past year with Windows 10. As of 2 days ago I'm getting the same blank shell as pictured above.

Wish I could find a replacement that shows as much info in as small a space as this geriatric (and now broken) widget.

Looks like this was caused by a Windows Update somehow. People are reporting other weather widgets have also stopped working as of a few days ago.
