Using the New Mac Weather App

macOS Ventura includes a new Weather app, as does iPadOS 16. You can get current conditions and forecasts for your locations and anywhere around the world. The information and maps are quite detailed.

    Who makes this app and how do you get it. I have the latest update Ventura and its not on my M2 MacAir.

    Lloyd: It is part of macOS. If you have macOS Ventura, then you have this app on your Mac. Just look for it in LaunchPad or using Spotlight.

    Thanks Gary. Been trying to find and download Apple Weather. Right under my nose. (Ventura) Can it be moved (or duplicated ) from the dock into Favorites on Safari? Bob

    Robert: Weather is an app. You can't bookmark an app in a web browser like that. Favorites in Safari is for favorite web sites, not apps.

    The Sunset Box incorrectly displays the sunrise time (about an hour off). When I click on the box to show further details then the sunrise is correct. This happens for three of my saved cities. Today is Saturday, 05 November, so perhaps this error deals with the time change

    Probably the Sunset box shows the next sunrise, which is in standard time and the details show the last sunrise, which is in daylight time

    Since I reinstalled Ventura (and did Time Machine restore after problems) I no longer have the weather (or clock) apps.

    David: So when you go to your /Applications folder, they aren't there? How about in /System/Applications?

    I have MacOS Catalina....went app store and bought Mac Weather app, put it on my Mac and now it won't come up....just the logo....does it not work on Catalina? and if it doesn't how do I cancel and get a refund?....I apparently have it on my iPhone 12 because my weather app isn't acting like it did before....

    Shirley: The Mac Weather app is only available as part of macOS Ventura. It isn't in the Mac App Store. It is free. You can't get it with Catalina. I'm guessing you bought a third-party Weather app, not the one from Apple.

    Somewhere along the line I deleted the weather app on my iPad. Can you tell me how I can get it back? Thank you

    Bob: You can download it from the App Store. Make sure you are getting the one by "Apple" not some other company.

    David: This app is part of macOS Ventura (macOS 13). You need to update to get it.

    This is the first commonly used weather app that shows recent precipitation, a very useful item.

    I am unable to add location to list as it's greyed out in the menu and the key combo doesn't work, either. I'm running Ventura 13.0.1 on an M1 Max MacBook Pro. I can change the widget fine, but I have need to add locations to the app list. I have 2 accounts on my MBP and it's the same in each. Don't understand why there can't be a search box as there is on the iPadOS 16 app. Everything works fine on my iPad Pro. I can't post a screenshot here, of course.

    Sarah: To add a location, first use the Search box at the top right to search for that location. Type something in there and press Return and let the weather information for that area load. Then you'll be able to click the Add button that appears next to the search box or use the menu item.

    I love the new app and am very glad it was added to the OS. Is there a way to make a location "primary" or "default"? I have several cities set up but the order keeps changing.

    10 months ago

    Walter: I haven't seen the order change for me. Also, when you quit the app and start it again it should return to the one you had selected.

    Gary, Thanks for the quick reply. I have had to reset the order several times, but it's easy to do, so no big deal. I'll keep watching it. I just thought there might be a way to "pin" it,
