I have switched to Today Weather since the Dark Sky acquisition. I would really, really appreciate the ability to disable immersive mode.

From the Android Developer guide:
The immersive mode is intended for apps in which the user will be heavily interacting with the screen. Examples are games, viewing images in a gallery, or reading paginated content, like a book or slides in a presentation.
You might be tempted to enable fullscreen mode just to maximize screen space for your app. But be mindful of how often users jump in and out of apps to check notifications, do impromptu searches, and more. Using fullscreen causes users to lose easy access to system navigation, so you should use fullscreen mode only when the benefit to the user experience goes beyond simply receiving a little extra space (such as to avoid accidental exits during a game or delivering a valuable immersive exerience for images, videos, and books).

Quoting the developer guide is meaningless. Might be better served to provide usage details on why you want it that way.
This:

In my opinion, immersive mode makes sense in video apps, games. It doesn't make sense in a weather app.
I understand that this is my preference: I like having easy access to system navigation when checking the weather. For that reason, I would appreciate the ability to disable immersive mode.

Well Then I would advise you to make your own app. Wait system navigation? Are you still using the nav bar that is slowly being removed from the os? Instead of the gestures which you should not lose while in the apps? I am just asking to maybe give the dev more info.
