just long press on the home screen, and then select add/widget
then scroll through the available widgets and add it back. Be sure you are on the screen with the missing widget before you attempt to do this. That oughta get you right back to where it was!

Good luck
Aloha

Did you recently change your launcher ?

Some widgets are part of TouchWiz, and they are not available if you change you Launcher to things like Nova etc...

I do understand that you might like that widget very much, but could I recommend an alternate ? UCCW widget. You can actually built your own, from custom font, to custom weather icon, and tons info for the widget to display. Far better than the stock! Not as friendly at first, but once you play around and get how it works, you can built some really cool stuff.

If you did not install launchers and everything is stock, you can visit Samsung App store (not google play). Most of their widgets are available there.

Hi thanks for the reply , turns out I have disabled the widget in the applications section and have completely forgot about it . And yes the weather widget only works with the TouchWiz not the Nova Launcher . I will be looking for alternatives as TouchWiz can be laggy.
