3] Reset the Weather app
Make no mistake, resetting an app should always be the final action to take since it tends to delete all information it has gathered to make it work best for you. Then again, resetting usually never fails when it comes down to fixing most problems.

After firing up the App section, click on App & features, and from here, seek out the Weather app.
Finally, click on the Weather app, then select Advanced options. Finally, click on Reset, restart your Windows 10 computer, and check if everything is working again.
