Thanks Josh, for your efforts. I find the default one is perfect for my needs, but it just didn't come with my distro, and i'm simply unaware what it's called or how to get it. It's kind of like how kubuntu doesn't include the lancelot menu so they can cut down on disc space.
I've just got a response on the Frugalware forums. I needed to install a package called 'kdeplasma-addons'. This got me the default weather widget. Hope this helps anyone having the same issue.
