The Weather app allows the user to see the weather for specific locations. The weather service provider is World Weather Online.
There is a date check against maintenance date for determining FIN functionality. If current date is later than the maintenance date the weather app will be disabled, but all other FIN functionality remains the same. It is important to keep up with maintenance if weather data is needed. If the license does not have weather enabled, then weather app will be disabled.
When adding a weather record, it will add four pieces of data: temp, condition, sunrise, humidity. Each of these are considered a point and will be counted towards the licensing CAPs.
