I have a Verizon LG G3, stock unrooted. It is supposed to show weather info on the locksceen or when you close the cover, using the QuickCircle case. The weather info is powered by Accuweather, but when I close the QuickCircle case, it consistently says "Set cities in weather app" and doesn't show any weather info for my phone. Looking at just the lock screen, it doesn't show anything weather related at all.

The location IS set in the Accuweather app and displays correctly on my home screen.

When I go to Settings - Lockscreen - Weather Animation - the check box isn't checked. When i click it, it asks me to add a location. I am prompted to enter a location and do so. But when i do it says that the location "already exists". That is correct - I can see that it exists in the accuweather app on the home screen, however no cities are set for the LOCKSCREEN display of the app..

Its like the lockscreen function of the app can't store or access a saved city...??

I have tried clearing the data for the Weather app, and the LG keyguard app but neither worked.

Anyone have any ideas?

I'm not sure which is the following instructions resolved the issue, but I now have a location set for my weather on the lock screen. If you too, are having this issue try the following procedure....

1. Remove any weather widgets from your home screens.

2. Clear the cache, and data, and force stop all 3 weather related apps. To do this, go to Settings, application manager, and then flick right until you get to the list of all programs. You should see one called weather, one called weather theme, and one called weather platform. Do this for all 3 apps.

3. Turn on Location. I used the power saving mode and this worked fine.


4. Add the 2 X 1 sized widget to your home screen. Do not add the 5 by 2 widget. Click it, and set your location via the current location button. Do not manually type in a location.

5. Go back to your home screen and verify you have weather data for where you are. Then turn off your screen and verify you have weather data on your lock screen.


Hope this helps!!

turn on location and choose the one with network assist.
turn on wifi.
remove the set city.
then add your hometown and other cities.

if you want weather animations on lockscreen, enable sync.

I had set Google Now as my launcher. To fix this, I reverted back to the LG Home launcher and then tapped the large 4x2 widget which I could see caused it to automatically set to my current location. I was then able to set the weather animation on and change the launcher back to Google Now.

The instructions others provided did not work for me.
