Android UI Feedback Request

Since I can't seem to find the premium features section of this website - which is utterly frustrating, I'm posting this here. I am an aspiring UI/UX Designer working on my first ever Android UI built primarily on UCCW and Apex Launcher. This UI theme will be released for free once finished.

Home screen (90% complete) - http://skuftup.deviantart.com/art/Frostboxalpha-364476975

What I really want feedback on is the weather screen. I have a small blank area at the top of the screen and I can't think of what to utilize the space for. I am planning on putting email/news on a 3rd screen so I don't want to put those here. I was thinking of maybe doing a small calendar event widget - or a music player widget (not that I can find one with a theme I like at ALL).

Anyways... critiques/comments/suggestions welcome!! Thank you! Note: The photos of this UI will not be HD until release.

I'm not much of a designer myself, so I'm afraid I can't offer much in the way of suggestions. I think it looks fantastic, though!

If you're interested, here's a list of really cool custom Android home screens that you could potentially use for inspiration for what to put at the top of your weather screen:
