From whence does the weather widget ween its weather wisdom?

:D Out of curiousity the other day, I compared the weather widget to weather.com for our area. The forecasts were COMPLETELY different. I'm just curious where the widget is attached to get its forecast?

-1 for wording. "Whence" means "from what place or origin" and, according to Tiger's built-in dictionary widget, which is conveniently located very close to the weather widget, "from whence" is redundant.

accuweather.com, I believe.

At least that's what it says when you click the "i"

It does indeed get it from accuweather. *A long time ago I created a thread about it - search for threads created by me with "Weather widget" in the title (sorry, on my phone now and browsing is painful). An incredible amount of info is returned but ignored by the widget.
