Weather Widget in Dashboard not working

Just today I went to my Dashboard and noticed my Yahoo Weather widget (Stock) isn't updating. I restarted the dock, removed the widget and added it back, but it wont even recognize my city... Anyone else have this problem?

(And yes I have a working Internet connection)

I've been having similar problems with Weather on iOS 6. Limited just to my town. So I suspect the data source.

Unhappy

Same problem, first noticed today.

Neither weather nor stocks are updating on dashboard (OS X 10.8.2)—both use Yahoo! services, so I suspect somebody broke an API somewhere.

I’ve not experienced any problems on iOS.

If you check the console you should see the following errors:
Jan 11 19:02:56 DashboardClient[7816]: com.apple.widget.weather: Fetching data failed, no <response>
Jan 11 19:03:09 DashboardClient[7816]: connect() failed. errno:53, fd:8, port:5900

It looks like it is a server issue or an API issue on yahoo's end.

I’ve always preferred Weather Underground’s widget because Apple’s pulls data from an airport that is in the same city as me, but actually quite a distance away. WU’s widget gives you more flexibility. Not quite as pretty though.

Still no weather, no stocks

You’d think “someone” would notice the app was broken and fix it.

Why would they ? Their app is not broken. The app gets data from yahoo. It was their issue
