Yes, this is a good option!
I agree that the text colour should be customisable, it is very hard to see. That said, you can see the space where it lives, and, if you hover over it, you immediately get a tooltip with the temperature and current condition. Clicking here also opens up the whole app with more detail.
I don't think that feature requests will do much good, since this hasn't been worked on for about three years. However, it is open source, the source code is available on GitHub, and someone could revive this project and make it more user friendly. Even this one change would be a step forward! Any takers?
Also the source code might be a roadmap for the sWeather devs to (more) quickly get their app back up and running, since whatever API Weather Bar uses clearly works.
Just my $0.02....
