Outlook 2013 resembles Outlook 2010 in a lot of ways, but there are some noticeable changes. You can still perform tasks like creating distribution lists, but some menus and ribbons have been changed.
One of those changes is the addition of localized weather information that appears at the top of your calendar. This is meant as a helpful tool that can provide a little bit of future data that could affect the events on your calendar, and it is an addition that many people will appreciate. However, others may find it distracting and wish to remove it from their Outlook calendar screen. Fortunately Microsoft has set this weather information as an option that you can turn off and on, so continue reading below to learn how to disable it.
