    Anyone else seeing this today?
    My N8 knows that the time changed to DST, but the widget doesn't.
    Lockscreen shows the correct time.
    What's the fix?

    Click on the widget. It probably doesn't update as quickly. Or just be patient and wait. It'll update on its own.

    Thanks!
    I already tried clicking on the widget, removing it, restarting the N8 - nothing worked.
    I'll just give it time.

    This happens twice a year. Since I'm in Hawaii, I don't have that problem.

    It eventually fixes itself after a few hours. Just give it some time. Happens every time change.

    My N8 still hasnt updated the widget. Does it take several hours? When i refresh the weather part of the widget it says it updates at the correct time...

    Ok, I've tried all the fixes, nothing works. How long does one have to wait? It's 4pm here. I have my widget set to a different time zone now to get correct time but defeats the purpose of current weather. Help!

    Go to setting, apps and find the weather and weather forecast apps. Force stop them both and clear the cache. You'll have to reset your location but the time will be fixed.

    Just came on here to post the same thing... I tried everything. Cleared the cache, cleared the data, removed the widget, forced stop, etc... It fixed itself momentarily for a few seconds, then went back the standard time.

    Exactly.
    The advice above agrees with some research that I did. Best solution is to just "wait".

    My Weatherbug app changed it automatically, but son has an S8 Plus that he uses Weather Channel on, and it didn't change it.

    I'm having the same problem. Clear data and the time is correct then allow location services and the time reverts back.
    It works fine on my Note 5 but the 8 uses The Weather Channel and the 5 uses AccuWeather,im not sure if it makes a difference.

    I use a WeatherUnderground widget and it displays the correct DST time. The Weather Channel widget doesn't.

    The common denominator seems to be the Weather Channel / Samsung Widget. I guess I'll wait til the morning & see what happens.

    My mother's LG G5 was doing that this morning. I pressed update on the widget to no avail. Then I went into her device settings and went to Date and time and unchecked and checked the boxes for Automatic date and time and Automatic time zone. The time changed and all was well.

    Mine got it right...oh wait...I live in Hawaii. We don't do DST. Carry on.

    My note 8 is doing this as well. I suggest waiting and letting the app update on its own. I don't see any dst settings for the weather widget.

    Waiting doesn't seem to be a solution. It's already more than 24 hrs and nothing works... Clearing cache, force stopping etc... Did any one find a solution yet? Stupid widget by Samsung... They make great products and put it to shame with such silly mistakes...

    Is not a problem with the phone. It's a problem with a couple widgets. If you look at the actual time on the lock screen and upper right, you'll see they are correct.

    This happens twice a year. It'll happen again on Nov 4, 2018.

    ... I guess I'll wait until then to have the correct time!

    I had that same issue with my S8 plus. I did as described above, force stop the weather and weather forecast, clear cache, AND cleared data. Went back to home screen, correct time.
