    I'm not sure if this has been brought up before or not, but i found the weather widget comes with Tiger doesn't always give me the correct weather information. How does it work for everyone else here? Any idea where the weather data comes from, AccuWeather or TheWeatherNetwork?

    I've found it to be about as accurate as the local weather person. You can only trust it some of the time. At least it gives you a guide whether or not to take an umbrella or wear a coat.

    I have several on my dashboard and they don't always update at the same time. Sometimes it's 11:00pm at it is still "sunny.' And no, I don't live any where near the arctic circle

    i use the Radar In Motion, or whatever it's called now, to get current real time data i don't need to college to understand.

    take yesterday for example. big green, yellow and red blob on the map, yeah, i knew to wear a jacket ;)

    I believe it's accuweather. it may take a few minutes to update.

    BTW, search for Meteorologist. It goes in the task bar and gets weather channel data. It's fantastic.

    the built in weather widgets is ALWAYS wrong lol, so I disabled it and got a weather network one which is much better (but not as cool looking...)
