I've finally had enough of Beautiful Widgets. Now every morning when I first wake the device and tap on the weather icon, it shows the five day forecast starting with the previous day. Also, the high and low for the current day is the previous days numbers. The developer is currently swamped with emails, or I can only imagine, as he doesn't reply back very fast at all. Several days is the norm. I've already gotten a refund once for BW and would like to get another one and wait to see if he finally gets it fixed. Any idea on which email address I'd contact in order to get a refund? Thanks!

I wish it were that easy, but I've never had a task killer installed on this phone. I had a tech at Verizon try to install one once before I successfully stopped him. And a tech on the phone tried to as well and I told them both that a task killer is not necessary as the Android system does a very good job of delegating memory. It seems that I'm not the only person having this problem though as the comments for BW in the Market are full of complaints about this exact same issue.

Sorry I couldn't help then.
I had that problem when I first installed it, because my task killer kept killing it and it wouldn't update. Since I removed the task killer no more problems.
I barely use it anymore because I have decided I would rather have the forecast in the widget than a giant clock but it seems to update fine.

SBSH Weather. Unfortunately not yet out for Android. These are the folks who make PhoneWeaver (Phone profiler). They just announced SBSH weather for iPhooey. So maybe an Android version down the road.
I used it for years on WinMO. So much data and organized in an easy to access way. Even had METAR data from different stations available. Also listed all known earthquakes occurring anywhere in the world (optional). On my WinMo Today screen I had a 5 day forecast with precip probability and a small radar image I could click on to bring up instant radar map.
So far I have not been able to determine which of the currently available apps shows precip probability. I definitely want that, paid or free.
Can anyone offer advice in this regard?

I like weather & toggle widget with its extras app for full screen anim it covers what I need as a window works just as well but would love to see travelmate ported to android. Being a htc desire owner I ditched sence a month after perchase, and if I understood the rooting thing enough to know I wasn't going to brick my device ( to expensive to replace with this current finacial climate ) I would slap a vannilla rom on in a heartbeat.

OK, I've switched. When I last looked at Weatherbug, it didn't include radar for free, and just seemed weird. Plus, I had issues with getting that da$ned thing off my PC years ago....
But it's now way better, and I like it much more that TWC. Mainly, when you bring up the home screen, it has most of what you want on the first page, rather than forcing you to switch around to get what you want. And, it's graphic, so easier to get at a glance instead of reading.

Considering Weatherbug Elite won, I might have to check it out.
People at the dumb Verizon store when I got my first Droid told me how awful Weatherbug is. They're full of sh-t.My Smartphone Journey on Big Red:
