    Metro Weather showing Fahrenheits, Celsius selected on settings.


    Every time computer is restarted, the weather gadget shows temps in Fahrenheit, although I have very clearly set it to Celsius.

    This is what I can see when booted:

    That temperature is in Fahrenheit.

    I click the Metro gadget to enter Weather, and system immediately changes to Celsius, showing my locations:

    Settings are correct in data.js at C:\Program Files\Applications\microsoft.weather_1.0.0.26_neutral_neutral_8wekyb3d8bbwe\js:

    convertDataTemperature: function (toCelsius) { for (var _city in Weather.Data.cities) {
    ["temperature", "feelslike", "high", "low"].forEach(function (value, index) {
    Weather.Data.cities[_city][value] = convertTemp(Weather.Data.cities[_city][value], toCelsius);
    });
    for (var _day in Weather.Data.cityData[_city].forecast) {
    Weather.Data.cityData[_city].forecast[_day].high = convertTemp(Weather.Data.cityData[_city].forecast[_day].high, toCelsius);
    Weather.Data.cityData[_city].forecast[_day].low = convertTemp(Weather.Data.cityData[_city].forecast[_day].low, toCelsius);
    }


    for (var _hour in Weather.Data.cityData[_city].hourly) {
    Weather.Data.cityData[_city].hourly[_hour].temp = convertTemp(Weather.Data.cityData[_city].hourly[_hour].temp, toCelsius);
    BTW, every now and then when PC booted the weather gadget shows location Anaheim, California (default?). Clicking the gadget immediately reverts to my locations.

    I have Dev Prev installed on two rigs, this happens on both.

    Any ideas?

    "Good one"? What a strange response to my issue.

    Anyone who can suggest a solution, please post. How do I set weather template to use Celsius degrees so that temperature on Metro screen after boot would in fact be in Celsius, not in Fahrenheit as now.

    Hi Kari,
    I'm sure you would have tried sfc /scannow, if not, give it a try. I have tried many times switching between Celsius and Fahrenheit but found no problem.
