    Hello, I was checking the weather at various stations while I was riding the train. Although map updated the location accordingly, I noticed that the Weather app did not update the weather information according to my location. How come? Is there a way to do it?

    Check your Location Services setting for Weather: Settings > Privacy > Location Services > Weather. Maybe you're not allowing location access.

    But as I mentioned, my location in the Map app which used GPS was updated.

    It has been set to allow location access.

    Yesterday, I tested again. the location in Weather was updated accordingly almost all the time.
    At one location, it gave me a set of two floating point numbers (e.g. 20.548743, 123.45678) as the location. So, what is going on?

    Those numbers would be location coordinates (GPS, or conventional map) - latitude and longitude. Paste those into the Search of a mapping program (or even a regular Google search) and see what happens.

    If there is not a location name associated with a particular set of GPS coordinates, something like the Weather app may give you the GPS, rather than the location name. That particular location is in the midst of the Philippine Sea, southeast of Taiwan. Is that the actual address you received?
