This issue has been reported by Joe (MacBook Air M2):

“I’m running MacOS Ventura 13.0.1 and the weather widget says “Forecast Failed” when I try to view it by clicking the time at the top right of my screen.”

How To Fix Forecast Failed in macOS Ventura

Apparently, this isn’t a macOS 13 issue. It’s been reported in macOS Monterey too. Here is what you can do to fix it:

1. Restart Mac

A minor glitch could prevent the weather widget from loading properly. It could be fixed with a simple reboot:

  • Click the Apple logo in the top-left corner of the screen and select Restart.
  • Sign in using your admin account and check the Today view. Are you still seeing ‘Forecast Failed’?

2. Select Your City

If you still do, try to edit the Weather Widget and manually select the city or the area that you want the weather widget to provide forecast for:
