If you're having issues with the Weather app, you've come to the right place.

There are a few simple things that you can do to resolve most issues with MSN apps.

  • First, be sure that you have a connection to the internet. If you are on a mobile device and away from Wi-Fi hotspots, be sure that you have allowed the device to use your cellular service.

  • Next, be sure that you are signed in with your Microsoft account and that you are using the same Microsoft account on devices that you want to share information.

  • If you are using the app for the first time, it may download updates and some features may respond slower than expected.
