The weather app--again.

User ToZ on the XFCE web-forum posted complete and easy to follow "Cut & Paste" instructions for compiling xfce4-weather-app in a thread about the application back when it was failing to provide weather updates. A couple of other solutions were also mentioned including an alternate weather app called My-weather-indicator which appears to be a little more complex than the default app and allows the user to pick from four different weather data providers. I believe the thread is still on the first page (possibly the second, but it has "xfce4-weather-plugin" in its title) of whichever sub-forum it is in.
Hope this helps!

I posted this for you (in the earlier thread) a few weeks ago:

Since then, a new 0.8.4 version has been released, so you can 
download that and just drop it into place (and remove the two
patches) and it will work too.
