Weather widget stopped working

MIL complained her Weather Widget no longer works. I think she is running Sierra.

I checked my Mavericks machine: does not work

Wife's MBA with Mojave: does not work.

It appears the Yahoo servers behind the weather widget is not working. Is there a solution to fix this? maybe change some settings to a use a different server?

Thanks

Nope.

And most of the free weather services are limiting access.

I suggest adopting Meteorologist in the menu bar and setting it up with a (free, unless you really pound the servers) Dark Sky account API key.

[sourceforge.net]
[darksky.net]

OK, so this is is not as simple as I thought. So this is not an isolated problem, but it it happening to more people, right?

Thanks

I posted about this last week - [forums.macresource.com]. It appears Yahoo! has changed the API and from what was mentioned then there is no alternative or fix from Apple yet.

I browsed through some of the weather widgets from the webpage at Apple that Dashboard links to when looking for more widgets. So far they either have broken download links or did not work for me when downloaded.

clear day works well for me. You can either run it from the menu bar or as an app.

Another vote for Meteorologist. The latest (with a Dark Sky API key) works well for me.
