The dashboard is "going away" in Catalina -- Apple has deleted it.

For that reason, some of the "connections" [to internet sources of data] that existing dashboard widgets use (including the weather widget) are now broken and they won't be coming back, either.

My advice:
Start looking for something else.
There is a standalone app named "Weather Widget" that does everything the old dashboard widget did... and more.

Something to be aware of:
There IS a 3rd-party app called "Amnesty" that is geared towards "reviving" the Dashboard in Catalina. Read more here:

But... that still may not "fix" the "broken connections" that make -some- widgets functional (like the old weather widget)...

in Mojave, the Weather widget works fine in the Notification Center.

There's a couple of threads here that discuss replacing the Weather Widget parser file parser file in the System Library with the same file from older MacOS - the file uses Accuweather server rather than Yahoo. I had to do this a second time today when updating to the latest version of Mojave. The widget didn't connect immediately so I logged out and back in and it connected. Make sure WiFi is on before logging out.
