    I think it's stupid you have to use the "local weather" in the drop down in your notifications. That shit drains my battery because every time I drop my notifications down, it checks my location to show me the weather.

    I like it better before where it would just show the weather of whatever location you were last viewing in the weather app.
    I hope this gets addressed in 6.0.1 so the battery life doesn't suffer.

    It doesn't update the weather then when I bring my notifications down..
    It still defaults to "local weather". I can't choose what city I want weather for in my drop down notifications.

    You need to add your location after you turn off that setting.

    Where do I add this?
    I have it in weather, but it still just shows "local weather" in the drop down notification weather widget.

    Still shows this local weather though, and doesn't update (obviously since I disabled location services for weather.)

    it should work just fine.. i noticed the same thing but then prowled over to privacy to turn off weather location alerts and walla. that was a waste of energy on apple's part moving it all the way into there
