Native Weather app slow to launch.

My Pixel XL is about 6 or 7 months old and currently running the official Oreo OS (not rooted). For the past month or so (both before and after the Oreo update), my native weather app (Google's...top right corner of the home page) sometimes takes about 5 to 15 seconds to launch.

Rebooting the phone usually fixes it, but I was wondering if anyone else is seeing this, and if there might be a fix for it. It's not an app that you can press/hold then go to app info and force close. I'm also aware that I could use another weather app. I have many, but this one is my favorite.

Any suggestions?

I would clear the data cache of that app. not sure what that app is feeding from.
click on it. let it open and then press recent to see the app name

It's a native Google app on the Pixel, so it just has "Google" as the app name.
