for some reason, when i ask siri for weather i say...

"whats the weather today."

"what's the weather"

siri will either give me the weather for like NEXT week or siri will say "here is the weather" and force me to look at the phone.

sometimes i can get siri to actually tell me the exact conditions outside for today.

does anyone know the actual commands or what i'm doing wrong?

I simply asked SIRI what is todays weather. She told me we could be getting some snow today. She read what was on the screen.
strange that works for me.

when i say what is the weather, it says here is the forecast between here and march3rd and shows it on the screen. i guess it's very specific.

Do you have location services on for weather and Siri? If not turn them on and let us know if it makes a difference.

when siri just presents stuff to look at rather than reading it, you can try then saying "read it for me" and it might work. it's worked for wikipedia pages anyway.
