Here is my Cortana 2 beta settings for weather

 

Annotation 2019-10-08 190728.png

 

As you can see I've disabled forecast for my current city which determines it based on my IP Address Location, and instead I added a custom city to track. 

 

when I ask Cortana how is the weather like and similar questions, she answers me with forecasts of my current city (which IS disabled in the settings).

the reason why I disabled it is that i use VPNs and I don't want Cortana to tell me the weather details using my IP location cause that won't be accurate and it will show me forecasts for cities that I don't need.

 

This bug/problem exists in Version: 1.1909.15704.0
