Weather app completely messed up

Does anyone else have problems with the weather app on the iPhone 4s. iOS 5.0.1.

Sometimes the temperatures are way off, and when I click on the yahoo button, it has completely different forecasts.

Also, today for some reason, its showing me weather starting with Saturday. It's Monday, in case anyone isn't sure.

WTF is going on with this thing. I would think that the weather app should be rock solid since it's been around forever. My wife's iPhone exhibits the same behavior.

Yes, same thing here. At least, when I have "Local Weather" on in the Yahoo weather app. It works most of the time, but sometimes will default to Saturday, and show a 7 day that's not right.

If I turn Local Weather off, and have my own city at the top of my Cities list, all is well. The "Local Weather" nails the city, but the time/forecast is off...

I also have had problems. Even on 5.1, well the beta at least, it hasn't been fixed.

It's extremely flawed when I check my weather using Notification Center.

Lately, on occasion, one of my four forecast cities will show the opposite screen relating to day or nite. For example, at 10:00 PM three of my cities will have nitetime screens but one will have the daytime screen. Ditto during the daytime. Never the same city; I have to delete the city and then add it again in order for it to be fixed.

I just want to go on record with the flaw/bug/glitch. I have iPhone 4, not 4s, but the problem may be with the way the weather app itself is functioning and not be model related.

Sometimes, it thinks I am in New York City :( I live in Clearwater, FL and Sactown, Cali. Only been to NYC once, and it was before I even had a smartphone.

They gotta fix this weather app. Pretty sad that you can't get accurate weather or even an accurate location.

If I use 'Local Weather' it puts me in Washington DC. I'm in New Jersey. It's about a 4 hour drive to DC, but the weather varies greatly from time to time. It's amazing that the weather app can't locate me, but the maps can... what the heck?
