    Ever since upgrading to iOS 5 back in October, I keep running into this strange issue where my weather will switch from the current weather to Saturday's. This only happens if I switch off the local weather option and manually enter in my zip code to find me (I did this to conserve battery life). Anyone else seen this issue? It goes away if I delete my city and manually re-enter it. Another strange issue this is that it only affects the city I live in, all the other cities I manually entered seem to be fine??

    This happened to me last night, i was checking my weather and it showed me the weekly forecast from Saturday onward. Mind you this was in the notification drop down. After i went and opened the actual weather app, it took a hold of the location services and updated it.

    I rarely even view the Notification Center but this thread prompted me to go and check mine. Sure enough, the Weather 6-Day Forecast showing across the top of the N.C. begins with Saturday. Today is Friday. What good is a forecast that's 6 days old? Where I live the weather this week had wild temp swings (40° difference between high & low within 24 hrs.)

    HA! Checked 3 minutes later and it sorted right before my eyes immediately upon pulling down N.C. Watched it update from Saturday to Thursday (still 1 day late.)

    Odd that this would happen. Might have been a glitch in transmission. I like the Yahoo weather. It's fairly rural out here and we always seem to get coastal (mild) temps instead of the hugely different inland temps. Yahoo does the best so far... At least for this area.

    Fixed it Wednesday, it's back on Saturday today....

    Edit: 30 minutes later, it's showing the correct forecast! Seems to have a mind of its own :)

    I have the same issue intermittently. So does my wife. It goes back no forth, eventually fixing itself.

    The weather it shows is also completely wrong. It'll show rainy when its starting on Saturday, for example. It would help to also let apple know at www.apple.com/feedback.
