Default Transparent AccuWeather

I know that we just got root but I was wondering if anyone knows how to make the stock weather widget transparent. If this is wrong section please move.

Unfortunately you can't adjust transparency unless you're using the TW launcher. Even if you do adjust it in TW, it doesn't stick when you switch to another launcher like nova.

Couldn't get that to install. Running DK, no Exposed. Did a permissions fix. Looks like a nice mod, wish I could install it.

The widget does work on my S5 running Solo launcher. Not transparent, but it does work. On mine I have to re-size it, not sure why. Gonna try the default launcher to see if I can get transparency.
Edit: Tried the default TW launcher and the widget was indeed transparent.
It's a shame that only works on the one launcher.
