Sidebar - Where does it store its information?

Where do sidebar gadgets, such as newsfeed and weather, store their
information. For instance, when the weather gadget loads, it first shows the
old temperature, then will check for a new one. Attached with this old
temperature is a date when it was receieved. I want to ERASE the old
temperature becuase my weather gadget will not update since the old date
attached with that is feb 28th... and when I put my computer back to today's
date, it stopped updating, and is stuck on that temperature. Please let me
know if you know how to clear this out. I do not want to have to wait a
month. I tried uninstalling it and reinstalling it, no luck.

Try this path:

C:\Program Files\Windows Sidebar\Gadgets\Weather.Gadget

I would recommend closing the Sidebar first, go to the above path, rename
the file extensions in case this does not reset the weather, and run the
Sidebar again to see what happens.

Hope this helps.

Is there any way to fix this without creating an entire new Windows account?

No luck, note this is a 64 bit system.
