    Do you have the widget loaded on your homescreen or have at least set it up once? It draws the information from that widget. Also, if you don't have a network connection, it won't be able to get the data.

    You have to have the widget set up and set to sync.

    Just did it on my ATT lock screen without a hitch. Anyone know if this draws any additional battery? I kinda like it on the lock screen but I am not going to keep it if it is a battery hog

    It shouldn't be that bad. At worst, if it updates once per hour, it will get the weather update in say 60 seconds of internet, so the device is awake for a minute per hour. Facebook will probably drain more than that if set to sync every 30 minutes.

    If you have the widget set to a refresh interval on your homescreen it should draw the same battery with or without the lockscreen option. That only mirrors the info.

    Have you tried to change lockscreen types? Like using slide to unlock or something? Does it show in any other ones?

    Does the Location mode need to be set t high accuracy for the weather to update? I keep location set to power saving but it never updates.

    Nope, I keep mine to battery saving and that uses the general tower location from the network. It only picks up the nearest town sometimes, but that's good enough.

    The issue is you have to have the built in Samsung Weather app set to your location. I had the same issue with it when I just entered a city, but when I gave it access to my location it suddenly appeared on the lock screen.

    Let us know if sforsyth01's solution works. I do have mine set to auto-detect my location.

    also fyi, don't freeze the unifieddaemon either, because that's what pulls data for weather. if that's frozen, you'll never get a location even if you manually put it in.

    Hello AndroidCentral! 1st time poster here.

    I was having the same problem with the weather not showing on the lock screen. I tried to turn on the setting for using current location through the widget and it didn't work. So I then deleted all of my weather locations that I had entered manually on the "city list." When I went back to the widget it had no locations for me and said "tap here to add a city." When I tapped it, even though I had already allowed the setting for using my current location, it prompted me to allow it again. After allowing it again and clicking on the city that is my current location the weather on the lock screen began to show. My theory is that because I had already entered my current city manually it was choosing that manual setting over my current location because they were one and the same.

    Anyway, worked for me, hope it helps.

    BINGO!!!! I had the same issue and this ended up being the fix. I was going to comment but all I can say now is Ditto and confirm that this does work.
