In Apple's Weather widget, my extended forecast has been showing up today as starting with Wednesday. It's Saturday, so it should start with Saturday and continue on.

Is this a common thing people have noticed today, or is it just me? Is there any fix I can do for this?

Yea I have noticed that as well. It may just be the widget

Mine has never worked well, even pressing command R. The temp in denver is always 10 degrees less than it really is.

Duff-Man says...I noticed earlier today mine was showing back to wednesday as well - I just checked it again and it is okay now. Whenever the weather widget goes flakey the first thing I try is re-selecting my city in it...that usually fixes any trouble....oh yeah!

Mine is saying it is Wednesday, too... but I think it's just the days that are off, because it seems to be todays weather and the next 6 days forecast.

BTW: Choosing the place again didn't help. And if I choose a new place that too shows Wednesday... so I guess it's just the days that are confused...

Looking at the widget, it's just passing along whatever day names Accuweather hands it. Maybe Apple should start looking into other weather services, this one is wacky.

Yeah you might be right. I've got 4 weather widgets in Dashboard - 2 are showing Thursday and 2 showing Sunday - and they keep moving.
Time for a change.

I just noticed this same thing an hour ago. Trashing the weather widget .plist solved the problem for me.


edit: now, however, the problem has returned!

Worked for me.

Edit:: No it didn't. Woke up to all 4 of my weather widgets displaying the same city, and using degrees Fahrenheit instead of Celsius.

Weird, I have many of the above-mentioned issues but only w/ my PB not on my iMac. After trying all the suggestions w/ no improvement, I decided to change the city (to a nearby city) and voila! Good as new.

I have also noticed problems.
I have two Australian cities presently... and one is fine - and the other is stuck as mentioned above.

CMD + R didnt help
Revalidating the city, didnt help...
created a new widget for that city - that didn't help either.

Had two widgets for the same city - one displaying C and the other F.
About 10 mins ago the new one displaying temp in F clicked over to today...
so I only now have both cities showing the correct day.

Has been very hit and miss for a long time - so I'm trialling a locally sourced widget at present too... seems much more accurate (temperate wise) as well as always displaying the current day. Only problem is it doesn't yet have forecast or icons. (but uses Aust BOM data source)
