Dozens of reports are emerging that Sony’s stock weather widget for Xperia handsets has stopped working. It appears that a network error took place yesterday, not allowing any refresh of weather data. The widget is currently display a “No network connection” message for those who already have set a location. Users trying to add new locations are met with a “Location not found” error message.

Sony uses AccuWeather to provide the data and the latter appears to acknowledge the issue, although there is currently no timeline for a fix. The widget still appears to offline as of writing this post and is affecting all locations worldwide. There’s nothing users can do right now, apart from sitting tight and waiting for the issue to be resolved.

Update: As mentioned in the comments, the issue now appears to be fixed.

Thanks Zeke!
