    Does anybody else have this problem: my iPhone predicts snow every day from 7pm to 7am! This is irrespective of the weather in the rest of the day, which seems pretty accurate. For example, today it's been about 17 degrees celsius with bright sunshine, yet my phone thinks its now snowing! This is in the UK.

    Ah - stars! You may have a point there! It does seem to be very similar to the icon for snow. For what it's worth, location is Gotham, near Nottingham (not the one that batman lives in!).

    Give us a screenshot if you see it again.



    Also, the stock weather app is awful. I can't stand the built-in weather app, its not very reliable. I use Weather Channel and Accuweather and average the two.

    I wish we would get some more snow. March is our snowiest month and we've had none with temps in the 70s.

    I want my phone to show me snow soon. :mad:

    The weather app for my area got stuck on 54 degrees and night time for a few weeks about two months ago. It would do it for my town as a set location and while it was the "local area" weather. All other cities I went to worked fine. So I went to the actual Yahoo weather page (the app pulls its info from there) and even the website was stuck on that forecast for my area.

    Then it just started working again.

    I don't understand why Apple uses Yahoo for its weather app. Because when I think of the best place to receive my weather information, the last place I think of is a national weather agency dedicated to tracking and disseminating global weather information (ie: Weather Channel, Accuweather). I instead think of Yahoo :rolleyes:

    Funny, except Yahoo weather IS the weather channel.

    Then their apps don't match up because many times I've had different forecasts when comparing the Weather Channel app with the Apple weather app.

    I laughed my ass off. I know you're being helpful but it is funny.

    Poor kid is probably dressed for heavy snow every day. :(
