    Windows Weather and Lock Screen -- Weather not showing


    I have The Weather app permissions set to allow it to display the weather on the lock screen. This has been working fine for some time -- up until now.

    Now it only shows alerts, not the temperature. Any idea how to fix this?

    To get the weather to show on the lock screen TWO things are needed:

    1. Give the Weather app permision to access the lock screen.
    2. Tell the lock screen what you want to see.

    I think number 2 is set up by default and I think I set up number 1 myself. This was enough to make it work.

    Somewhere along the line I mucked up number 2. I do remember experimenting in that area.
