I opened my weather app and noticed it's giving me "local" weather for a city about 50 miles away from me. I turned local weather off and back on, same issue. Rebooted the phone, same issue. Does anyone know what is causing this to be so inaccurate? I could understand if it's giving me the weather for a city 5 miles away, but 50 miles is just a bit ridiculous.

Click the little i down in the lower right corner to access the settings and see what's in there.

That only allows me to toggle local weather on/off or add static locations that stay regardless of where I go.

Mine is doing this too. It's also stuck on the same temperature and icon (cloudy nighttime) just for my home town.

At first, it worked great. My current location was very accurate and it updated fine. But now it's both frozen for current conditions and says I'm somewhere I was days ago or in another town a few miles away. Don't know what happened.

The first time this happened, I fixed it by just turning my phone off and on, but now I can't fix it.

In case anyone was curious, I called Apple today and they told me go to Settings > General > Reset and reset network settings. It seems to have fixed the problem (for now).

That didn't fix my stuck icon and temperature problem. My sister is now having the same problem with our local town weather too. Strangely though, when I go to yahoo.com and check the weather there...it's stuck on 52 degrees and nighttime. So I guess this is a yahoo weather problem...
