    No matter what I've done, the Accuweather widget always ends up getting stuck on "loading your weather". I've allowed any and all permissions, no battery restrictions, I rebooted, cleared cache, uninstalled and reinstalled the widget and it always ends up hanging.
    Sometimes it takes a few hours for it to hang, sometimes 5 mins.

    Anyone else experiencing similar problems?
    Any solutions?

    Thanks!

    You'll notice that the Accuweather app also sometimes gets stuck on the sky blue screen. It may be a problem with their server. I'm giving it a week, then looking for another weather app.

    I should of added that this has been happening since I had the phone (Mar 2018).
    Sorry about that.

    The AccuWeather widget just sucks. I've had it on other devices and it's never been consistent. I just stopped using it.

    Noticed similar problem with AccuWeather Premium app on Pixel 2 XL. Radar would also hang. There was an update yesterday, and so far app is working as expected. The Now, Hourly, Daily, and Radar are showing information right away, instead of hanging and showing nothing.

    Nevermind. Stupid widget crashed again. But at least it held on for about a day.

    I am having the same issue. Galaxy S9. I use the widget on my home screen. It is stuck on "Loading your weather..." This has been going on for a few weeks now. I've removed the widget, re-added it and it shows up and works fine for a little while, but then gets stuck shortly after. Frustrating, and will likely find a new app soon. Been waiting for an update for it to fix itself, but nothing yet. The widget is a perfect fit on my home page, so I am trying to hold off as long as I can. Will monitor this thread if anyone has any luck fixing.

    A quick update, I contacted Accuweather in regards to this. They responded:

    "We are aware of the problem that you are experiencing, and are actively working on a solution. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused."

    Not much of a response, but at least it appears they are aware of the problem. Now let's see if they can fix it.

    Here is a little tidbit. The widget just reappeared. Looks like it's able to recover on its own now.

    Shame that you guys are having problems. I just checked my AccuWeather and I have absolutely no issues. Have you guys done something to your phone that causes this? I’ve had this on my iPhone,iPad, and now my galaxy S9 and no hiccups .
