    I read how notifications should show today's weather and traffic updates but mine only shows calendar.

    In settings, under "Today View" there is only an option to switch the stocks widget on/off but no weather or traffic widgets.

    Is this just currently US enabled only ?

    from an earlier thread, the OP stated something similar to what your dealing with.....the settings menu didnt have all the toggles it should. a hard reboot fixed it.

    If you have background app refresh turned off, or specifically weather is disabled in location services or background app refresh, weather information won't show in today view.

    well yea its no longer a widget, but my impression from his post was he doesnt even have the toggle in the notification menu to select weather and traffic on.

    OP, once you do get it and turn weather on, sometimes it takes awhile to show. you will likely need to manually go into the weather app then back out to the notifications menu a few times to get it to show.

    ----------

    weather will still show with backround refresh off. it will just update only when you slide the menu down. i have it turned off and the weather shows/updates perfectly fine.

    Make sure you have location services turned on. You should get a text weather summary in Notifications Today tab. If you tap on this, it will take you to weather app for more info.

    Traffic: iOS 7 has some learning AI...it learns where (and when) you frequently travel (among other things)...for example, it will learn your work route and eventually tell you how long it will take to get to work today using traffic info.

    Also: "Traffic information in Today view is available on iPhone 4s or later." footnote from here: http://www.apple.com/ios/whats-new/
