    It’s flash based.

    Flash/javascript/iframes are all stripped out for security reasons here at wp.com. You’ll need a weather widget that’s plain html. I don’t remember seeing one at weatherbug. On my ESL blog, I use weather pixie. You can see it here… http://esladventures.wordpress.com/

    If you’re not a fan of WeatherPixie, Wunderground, or an RSS feed of your local weather, you can try http://www.4wx.com. It works for US and Canada locations only.

    Another place to pick up a customizable weather widget in plain html at http://www.weather-forecast.com. It works for mostly US locations. If you’re interested in more dynamic weather widgets, such as from iBegin, Simple Weather, etc., you can make a recommendation through the forums (or possibly through the Feedback form) so WordPress can study the possibility.
