Siri using wrong location for weather

Siri is confused. She thinks i'm in New York, Texas (yes, apparently that's a real place) for weather. I'm in NYC. When i ask her other things, she finds locations near my building in NYC. But weather forecasts are all messed up.

Is there any way to change this?

I hope there is a fix. I'm in Richmond, Va but siri thinks I'm in New Richmond, Ohio if I ask about the weather. Maps and other location specific items has me in the right place.

I have the same problem (also in NYC). She messed me up two days. I went outside earlier this week with an umbrella thinking it was going to rain. I got outside and it was clear and sunny (I keep my blinds closed so the sun isn't blaring in my eyes before I wake up in the morning).

Same for me. I'm in NYC and am getting Siri weather for New York, Texas. I assume this default can't be changed. Would love to hear if anyone has found a solution.

I assume this is something apple will correct relatively quickly. At least, I hope so. I doubt it would even need an iOS update, just a quick change in siri's servers.

Yup, same problem. New York, Texas. It actually gives me three different forecasts. One for if I ask "what's the weather outside?" One for "Brooklyn" and one for "New York City". I hope this gets fixed soon.

yep, same problem here. Siri thinks it's August again in NYC....
actual forecast is for mid 70s. But it does say "New York City," so not sure how it might be confusing it with texas or something.

Yep, same here when I click the widget. I got my result by saying "weather in New York" after the result from "how's the weather" looked off.

And get this: when I say "weather for 11215" the widget shows Brooklyn, **Ohio**

I would have thought the zip code would straighten it out...

That sucks, guys.

It gets Frederick, MD correct on both my iPad and iPhone 5.

I live in NYC and when I ask Siri for the weather, it always says it's in the 90s. When I click on the Yahoo icon, it loads the page up to Austin, TX.

Siri-ously messed up

In New York City, since updating to iOS she thinks I moved to Texas not that there is anything wrong with Texas, I can't figure out a way to change the settings on the Yahoo page (click the "i") to see what I mean. Add this one to the list of the buggiest iOS version to date.

Yeah, when I clicked on it, it takes me to the Yahoo page and it's listed as "New York, TX". Never even knew such a place existed! iOS 6 has too many bugs, Apple seemed to have rushed it with this one.

Lol, same here. I'm in Vancouver but get the weather for Toronto. It's weird because if I ask where I am, it gets that question right.

Go to the weather app and click the "I" in the bottom right-hand corner. Add your proper location, (NYC is there) and drag it to the top of the list. That should solve da probzz lmao
