Then I found one post that was confirmed as a fix for the problem.The content of the post essentially stated that you need to open a XML file and simply re-save it: C:\Users\App Data\Local\Microsoft\Windows Live\Services\Cache\I tested it myself, and when I reopened the widget, it soon reappeared with the current temperature.
On both of our Red Mi Notes (HM Note1W, ROM MIUI-JHDCNBF30.0, MIUI 5) has a rather annoying problem in that the widgets do not update after the phone has been asleep. I have a clock/weather widget on the front screen, and the time is usually wrong. If I open the widget, then close it, the time usually updates (depending on the widget).
I had the same problem with an IP camera app widget (Tinycam Monitor Pro).
The method defined in this post is now not working any more.
[at the beginning it was working but not anymore] , I will see if alternate methods may work and will update this post in coming week, to see if its working …
(However, that version may not work behind a proxy, but that's a different problem).
The fix to this has already been implemented in libmateweather, you can see the patch in the Mate Desktop Git Hub repository as commit 835055e0d0b950d3f66ad236de7e40942f6f7d8e.
Around mid-January this year, the weather gadgets stopped updating on all of the PCs in our building.
First symptom was that the temperature became a 'forecasted' range.
A strange but true tip that seems to work for a lot of folks is toggling on “Bold Text” in the Display & Brightness setting. Go to Settings Once you have explored the notification settings of the widgets, Press the home button and wake/sleep button for 10 seconds or so and let your i Device restart.
