In addition to the weather for your current location, you can also add additional locations based on city name, area or zip code, or airport code. You can arrange all the cities in just exactly the order you want, and you can even remove ones you no longer want.

How to rearrange locations in the Weather app for iPhone

The Weather app for iPhone makes it easy to get all the time and temperature information you need, all at a glance. But what if you want to change the order? What if you want them all arranged by time zone? Or by frequency of visit? Or by how important to you the relatives are who live there? Not a problem! iOS makes it easy to list all your cities in just exactly the order you want them.

  1. Launch the Weather app from the Home screen of your iPhone.
  2. Tap the List button at the bottom right (or pinch to compress down to the list view).
  3. Touch and hold the weather location you'd like to move up or down in the list.
  4. Drag the weather location to the position you'd like it to be in and then let go.

Repeat this process for each item you'd like to move up or down in the list.

If it would just show the correct temperature in the pull down notification center. It seems to lag behind a few hours. Location and refresh is on. Most of the time it just tells the high for the day with no current temp.

Mine says sunrise in Franklin, Indiana is 1:36AM! And the graphic sometimes is the night sky in the middle of the day.

My weather app is working fine. I have the current temp and all the highs and lows for each day

Looking for the same thing. The weather app allows to add locations but not delete them. Is there around this? I'm in Canada, and I'm getting U.S. weather by default.
