    I removed it with no problems. I use WeatherBug.

    I removed it, and afterwards I would get FC for "com.htc.bgp" or something like that... I was pretty aggressive though, and deleted everything in the directory with the word 'weather' in it... that may have been my problem.

    @eurotrash - which ROM are you running? Did you delete everything with weather in it, or just the weather.apk?

    I'm running VanillaDroid.
    I only deleted weather.apk/odex and left the other weather lines in the app codes alone. My main goal was to free up the drawer, not so much a major house cleaning.
    I did notice that my current weather still shows up in some other app that I used, don't remember which one now though.
