    When i first got my desire the app was showing the sun when the sun was out and the moon when the moon was out. Then after a week it shows the moon from about 7pm when it quite clearly the sun is out. I am in the nw of england and yet when i switch it to london at the same time it shows the sun? but for my area it shows the moon?
    Any body else have a similar problem?

    Yep same here. Actually i thought it may have needed updating so i did that but no difference. It showed sunny at 22.00 last night in the N/W. Very odd

    Have you got the location as 'current location'?

    Dont have that particular problem ,but how do you set current location ?.when i use maps to find location it is about 3 miles out ,so on home page weather is shown for West Bromwich instead of Dudley where i live.
    The separate weather widget,shows Dudley! ,if i turn on GPS and find location it sorts it out ,but then when i go to work it reverts back to West Bromwich and stays there.
    I thought Google maps was accurate within 200 metres or something,using mobile internet connection and hitting my location it never budges missing by about 3 miles

    If you're just using your network location chances are that the location database has been updated erroneously and your location now pins you to the wrong place. Kept happening to me in the area I live in (shows Chiswick in London instead of my city), but when I drive around to some other area (say about 4, 5 miles or so from Home) it displays my city again.

    Same problem here.

    My location (Luton) shows the moon and 10c temp.

    It's bright sunshine and 21c. London shows up correctly. I think someone has screwed up on the Android weather server.

    Have you lot all tried removing the app from your home screens, and re-setting the time and weather to your current location?

    Lol... to be honest, the widget is very nice looking, but totally pointless unless you live in a house with no windows and no doors.

    I am located in Switzerland, my location shows up correctly 80% of the time I'd say, whilst London shows constant bright sunshine regardless of the time of day or night.

    Yes.

    I've contacted 'Accuweather' who run this service. They said they were aware of the problem and are working to resolve it.

    Glad you've got to the bottom of it. It's also good to see somebody else from my neck of the woods on here!

    Do you have their contact details? That way we can all report locations that dont pull any weather, despite being valid.

    I was having this problem too. Then I realised it was the silliest thing: The weather app was only syncing every three hours. Change the sync settings back to one hour and do a manual sync to fix it straight away.

    Click on the weather widget to get to the app. Press menu > refresh. Then in menu > settings make sure it's updating automatically and syncing every hour. Fixed. :)
