    Amazing Weather HD has great LiveTile support but it isn't free. I'm not aware of any apps that combine time and weather on a single LiveTile at the level of detail you're after. I'm not even a Windows Phone user though so someone else might be able to offer up a better suggestion/solution.

    You will not find a clock tile that will work well for you. Only manufacturers have the ability to update live tiles every minute, so you can count that one out. As far as weather, there are quite a few that work well! Its basically preference that will decide for you! Amazing Weather HD is beautiful and has tile and lock screen support but when it comes to context and how they display the information, I prefer the free Weather Channel app.

    Now you also know how it feels when manufacturers make stuff for their own phones only.
