    Anyone notice that if you have weather widgets that use yahoo that all it ever shows is fair, cloudy, partly cloudy or mostly cloudy? It never shows rain or snow. It's been snowing her for two hours but all it says is cloudy. Same goes last week when it was raining all day but never changed from cloudy. Very weird. Anyone else notice this??

    The iWidgets that I have used so far use the weather code from Yahoo RSS weather feed that starts with US then your state abbreviation such as USCA... I'm in california However I think some iWidgets use the weather code that is generated from your zip code which is just a string of numbers Try and replace your location code with another citi just for the heck of it and see what happens. One of the iWidgets I use also gives you the option of updating the weather in different increments ranging from 15 minutes to 1 hour. Could it be the widget your are using has a lengthy refresh rate?

    No. Yahoo uses a long weather code. The USPA code is accuweather. Each widget I use is set to 15 minutes. The forecast tweak I'm using actually uses the default weather app that says cloudy also. Although it's been snowing for hours!!

    Yes I have. That's what I've been complaining about in this thread. It was snowing for 3 days where I'm at and we got about 20 inches. All Yahoo ever said was "Cloudy". Problem is if whatever you're using gets the info from the native weather app it's going to be Yahoo. Nobody seems to know how to alter that...

    I recently noticed the Weather Underground logo at the bottom of the 5d 10d forecast section.
    Good Luck

    Very frustrating!! Doesn't make sense. Doesn't Apple look at this stuff?

    You have to have widget weather installed in order for the correct weather to display. Yahoo code was broke with iOS 7.

    when you start out looking up your citi location in yahoo weather then select the extended forecast. Look in the top address bar and you will see the citi code written in the US followed by the state abbreviation but it's not from yahoo as I said ..oops... It's from weather.com

    I know how to get the weather code. Not an issue. What I was stating was that iOS 7 broke the way iWidgets, UNiAW, etc.. pulled their info from yahoo

    Ok. But not to sound stupid but putting code in is the same as putting it in widget correct ? How would the weather be different?

    Yep. We're supposed to get snow again tonight and into tomorrow. If it does snow, I'll take a screenie. I use a bunch of different iWidgets.

    iWidgets pull weather info from where the script says to pull it from. That is an advantage over something like Forecast shock pulls it's weather data from the native weather app And yahoo.

    Weird. Must be just where I live? Even the default iOS weather app said cloudy all during the storm. Drove me nuts 😜
