The unity indicators do not display in the gnome-shell top-panel. You will need to use gnome-shell extensions such as the one in the picture.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/gnome3
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install gnome-shell-extensions-weather

Logout and login and start gnome-tweak-tool and turn on the weather extension.

You can configure your location by finding your WOEID code from http://edg3.co.uk/snippets/weather-location-codes/
