    Not sure if this is a known issue, but WTF? i am still getting a bright sunshine and the temp if off by 7 degrees, plus i have it set to update every hour.

    Is there a fix?

    ETA: i had to manually hit the sync button about 3 times before it turned into a moon, then it went back into a sun!!!

    :thinking:

    Hehe I guess it's just a bug that HTC has to fix. I personally don't look at the weather widget. If I look at weather, I trust the Weather Channel a bit more than Weatherbug. Weatherbug also takes up resources.

    When I check update automatically on the weather widget, it said there will be additional charges. Are there additional charges or is it part of the data plan?

    So you check off to update automatically every hour. Now, just for giggles, go back into the settings. Is yours unchecked now too? Yup, this is a glitch.

    Anyone got a fix? :thinking:

    I had the same issue last night. It was 11pm, pitch dark and it was showing full sun. I had it set to update every hour. I actually changed it to every 3 hours and then immediately it corrected the sun and became a moon. I then set it back to every hour and when I woke up this morning it has been correct so far.

    same thing happens to me!
    sorry found the fix:
    To check:
    -from home screen:
    -menu-settings-accounts&sync-select auto sync

    I double checked my weather settings and my check mark for weather update was checked and stays checked.

    that's so weird, before reading your message, i did the exact same thing - its stupid that one area stays checked if you go through the process you mentions. but if you click on the weather icon and try it there, it goes back to unchecked...:thinking:

    This is happening to me and really annoying.

    It's 8:40pm here and it's showing it as Sunny. I have auto-update on and just synced it through the main menu settings. Updated the sync but still says Sunny.

    I just changed it to update every 3 hours and it immediately changed to a moon. I had switched it to update every 1 hour so maybe that is the bug?

    The strange thing is the choices they give you for update freq. I mean, why would I want it to update every 12 hours? Or once a day? Kind of defeats the purpose don't you think? I would think the choices should be like every 10 minutes, 20 minutes, and maybe every 2 hours at the most, otherwise you'd end up with the sun shining at night etc.

    that worked like a charm and update is working great now, it's just stupid that it's on two places and one is glitchy and the other isn't.
