    Mine just stopped working for a few weeks. I had to remove it, then put it up again and it was okay :confused:

    As far as I've understood it: The Weather widget (and some others) occupy a bigger space than the visible area. So if you have the widgets fairly close together they will think they're covering each-other and one (or more) will move a bit upon startup.

    To see how much space a widget really takes you can with Dashboard visible press cmd-(ctrl-)shift-4 then hit the spacebar. The cursor becomes a camera that will take a snapshot of whatever window it's hovering above. If you move that in over the Weather widget you will see it has quite an invisible top and bottom "border".

    There was another thread on this quite recently that may interest you – I certainly find it annoying (I like my widgets nicely aligned!). I think Mitthrawnuruodo is right with his explanation.

    Don't know 'why' but this also happened to me last week. Remove it from dashboard and then add it back, re-select your town and hopefully it should work again.

    Does anyone else's weather widget display the totally wrong weather? Apparently it's sunny at the moment... it's raining...

    Maybe the Glasgow I've selected isn't in Scotland? :confused:

    Edit: Just checked and it is on the UK one...
