  • I was able to set the city for Karachi, PAK.
    Remove all of the information in the weather app for the wrong city. Close out of the app.
    Open the Weather app again. Click on Add City. Enter in the first three letters of your city. It gave a list of cities that matched.
    I choose Karachi, PAK and was then able to successfully add the right city.

    Let us know if this help.

  • Right click - from the bottom menu - select "Current City" - if that doesn't work, from the same bottom menu select Add city and add Karachi!

  • There doesn't seem to be a way to set your location in the Weather app.  The only setting I see is for Fahrenheit/Celsius.

  • I do pick Karachi but it selects some other city and shows the weather for that. Even though the search shows Karachi but the city it picks is something different.

  • I think it's a database bug. I used my zip code, the picker showed my correct city, but it adds a city that's 30 miles away that does NOT use that zip code.
