I have (with my old iOS 7.1.2 and 8.1 jailbreaks) been using Weatherboard. It lets you place the animated weather from the Weather app directly over your wallpaper on both the lockscreen and the homescreen (or either or).

Weatherboard does what Forecast promised but did not deliver on in iOS 7 - namely live weather over your own wallpaper.

Weatherboard 2, will do the same AND do what Forecast was doing by put a forecast on the lockscreen!

Additionally, it will also be LockHTML friendly so you can still put other stuff in there on your lockscreen as well.

So…Forecast is dead…long live Weatherboard 2!!!

Nice been wanting weather to be displayed on my devices lockscreen again. Feels like last time was iOS 5.
LOL! Last time was iOS 8 for me - with Weatherboard.

On iOS 7 and 6, I modified an iWidget for an HTC animated weather clock to just show the animated weather and had LockHTML put that on the lockscreen and iWidget to put it on the springboard.

Oh man did I miss the weather. Didn't check it very often but knowing it was there was oddly comforting lol. Never used iWidget, pretty simple to set up?

Yes it is.

Long press on the homescreen, select the iWidget you want, the options and then "Add". It appears on your homescreen and to move it you put the icons on the sprinboard into 'wiggle mode.' Put it wherever you want. You can add more than one to the same screen, either of the same or a different type.

And LockHTML4 will let you put iWidgets on the lockscreen.

iWidgets are all HTML/CSS/JS code. If you are comfortable with editing that kind of code you can use iFile to do that and create customized iWidgets.

Right now though, iWidget does have a small bug. Once you place an iWidget nothing on your screen is pressable until you lock/unlock your phone. Once you do that you can move the widget and press to open apps again.

Can't wait to buy this tweak, I miss lockinfo which includes forecast functionality. For now I've got part of the functionality back by using perpetual9 but I miss having the animated wallpapers and lock screens and having weather available on the lock screen.

I'm using akvo with LockHTML4 for the moment on my lockscreen. It's not good enough for me to stay with, but it'll do for the moment. Still no animated weather though. I've done that in the past with a modified iWidget, but I just don't feel like going back and doing all that work again while I'm waiting for this.

With the Easy Time iWidget (and LockHTML for positioning).

How does the weather display over the wallpaper?

Also it the weather shows that's it's day time, but the sun is down.
Select the overlay to be your current location and for either the home or lock screen or both. Do not choose a specific overlay or it will never change.

Forecast always updated my location. This tweak isn't.
Then either it's your weather app or you have not set current location in both options.
I was at work in Glendale today. It showed Glendale. I'm in Phoenix now. It's showing Phoenix. Never had an issue.
