    got the same issue on my desktop pc running 8.1 , I resolved it by going to start screen , open charms menu->settings->tiles->clear personal info from tiles. try to open the app and it will show data :)

    I noticed this also.
    Neither of my phones Bing weather tiles are updating.
    Seems like this happened a couple of months ago too.

    That's weird, because my Bing Weather Tile updates all the time. I haven't noticed a problem so far.

    because you have enabled Bing weather in background task , if it is disabled\blocked it wont update the live tile :)

    Yes, I do have it enabled, and I open the app on a daily basis.

    my mom love tiles , she hates opening apps on her previous phone , but after gifting her a Lumia 520 , she gets all the details at glance ; she daily discovers something new on her phone :)

    Check under background task if Bing weather is allowed to run in background. If it is stopped then disable it :)

    I have two 520s and the Bing Weather tile stopped updating on both. Now they are blank. Did a hard reset on one to no effect. Back to the Weather Channel even tho that never has updated except when you open it. At least it's not blank.

    ^a bit I think
    after waiting a day after clearing info, all my tiles resume working again while the weather tiles still won't work. I'm sad.

    Well, the WC one isn't as pretty as Bing but it's actually better. It has a standard 36-hr forecast, 10-day chart and tells you the wind for each hour of the day. Good for us dog walkers. Opens slow tho. And it is updating! My Drudge tile and TimeMe sleep screen are also updating. Bing still not, but I don't care.

    I ask because it seems to be a cross platform problem

    Used my tablet today and Bing Weather magically start working again.
    Gosh! I'm glad but still a bit annoyed that Microsoft can't even make a weather app right.

    So true!!! Accueweather won't auto update location, weather channel has the same problem as Bing! MS do it right or give developers the freedoms to do it right for you.

    Mine quit working too. Finally gave up fiddling with it and installed Accuweather.
