Why does my summary text "Stormy with a chance of meatballs" keep getting cut off?

The text just shows up as "Stormy with a chance of" and the rest of it is cut off.

I'm gonna take a bit of a shot in the dark here, since I can't verify, but try changing the

   android:layout_width="wrap_content"

to

   android:layout_width="fill_parent"

If that doesn't work I would try increasing the size of the margins for the meatballs textview. Hope I could be of assistance.
