No ideas on how to get it to work, but I'm running the
same versions of both and just added a new location without any
problem (not thinking to try that when I upgraded, but happy to
see that mine at least works!). :)
I assume you're using the $data directory still for user
preference storage as opposed to using a database? If so, have
you tried it on a different (i.e. new) user with no preferences?
Or have you tried maybe deleting any reference to twc in your
own preferences? I think it only uses any line starting with
"twc_weather" to store each location.
Of course, you might also try a different Zip. Maybe
TWC's page just doesn't like the Zip you are trying to use? As
far as configuration, the plugin doesn't really require any.
Make sure your web server has write access to the $data directory
too. Although I don't think the plugin would choose that error
necessarily for not having write access! :)

"He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself
without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine,
receives light without darkening me. That ideas should freely
spread from one to another over the globe, for the moral and
mutual instruction of man, and improvement of his condition,
seems to have been peculiarly and benevolently designed by
nature, when she made them, like fire, expansible over all space,
without lessening their density at any point, and like the air in
which we breathe, move, and have our physical being, incapable of
confinement, or exclusive appropriation. Inventions then cannot,
in nature, be a subject of property."
