    I believe if you update the Pixel Launcher, it will show up. May require a reboot.

    I searched and found it right away. I just typed Pixel, Boom there it was. Try a reboot.

    Weird. I found it.

    Updated Edit, more info: Update Pixel Launcher, re-boot the phone, give it some time, and it fixes itself.

    I guess I am struggling a little bit. I found it in play store but there is no 'Update'. Uninstall and reinstall?

    I updated/rebooted and initially it was still showing just the date, but after about 25-30 minutes it switched to the weather, so could be that it just takes a bit after updating.

    It's not obvious, but I got it working using the following steps:
    1 Long Press on Screen to get the Settings
    2. choose settings and turn on Google Apps
    3. Slide out the Google Page
    4. click on the 'hamburger' menu
    5. Click on Settings
    6. Click on feed and enable it
    7. Turn on the Weather setting in 'Get notified about'

    The it'll appear on the home screen.

    Thanks all. I think it's a UK situation. I went via Google support and they said it's not working currently but they will fix it soon.

    Pixel XL from the UK here - got it working this morning. Follow the link, does it give you the option to update?
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....nexuslauncher

    Head into settings > apps > locate Pixel launcher. Click into it and enable the three permissions it wants.

    Reboot the phone

    Swipe left to reveal Google Now, refresh the feed by pulling down, then head to the home screen - the weather widget should now be there

    I think you can get away without the restart, if you want to try skipping that step.

    Here's the fix that works for me. There are three cards in Google Now. Enable updates for all locations.

    In case anyone else is having this issue, I had weather cards turned off in Google now. Enabled it, and the weather came up. Guess same goes if you'd rather have the clock, disable weather updates.

    I'm struggling to find this setting. Can you be more specific where the setting is?

    Go to google now. In the settings select customize. Scroll down to"everything else." In there you'll find multiple options for weather in certain places. Ensure they're all enabled. Lemme know if this helps.

    Not working for me in the US either. But I'm going to wait it out for 25-30 minutes like another poster said, and hopefully it fixes itself.

    How do I make the widget go back to the date instead of show the weather? I have gone I to the "everything else"settings and turned weather off but it won't change.

    Reply to Tall Guy,
    I was so hopeful when I read yours, even after all of those suggestions above your failed. I had that weather widget when the phone was new, and then it disappeared at one point, maybe with the 7.1 update. Today I did the 7.1.1, hopeful that would bring it back. And now your suggestion, but still no luck. ...
