The weather is now a plugin that is installed as an option as part of RideRunner. It has been for several months. That being said, I don't think any of the weather functions would work unless you have installed the plugin. Unless you are using an old un-updated version of RR. If that is the case I am sure that the first thing that you would be told, is to update to the latest version or RR and check the weather box in the install options.
