Pocketday bad weather forecasts
I live in Southern California, and Pocketday's weather forecasts are consistently way, way off. I reported this to Cross River Systems a few weeks ago, but other than say they would "look into it" there was no response and the problem has only gotten worse. For example, Accuweather reports a high of 91 degrees today, but Pocketday says its 78. Accuweather predicts a high of 97 tomorrow, but Pocketday predicts 79.

Also, I've noticed that in the spot where the current temperature should be, I usually get just *o .

Anyone else have these problems?

try deleting the city, battery pull, then re add city. Report back.

Maybe I am in the minority. I do not find PD's weather to be that accurate as well. I only use the program for tasks and calendar. Still use BB Weather.

I find the weather to be wrong often, too. I have Weather Underground bookmarked to my zip code, and it's often showiing the temperature as too high, and Pocket Day is showing it too low, so I guess the real temperature is somewhere in the middle. :razz:

See, the problem here is expecting an accurate weather forecast from anybody.

With that said, in my area of New England, I've had the best luck with AccuWeather. Too bad they don't have a proper app yet.

PocketDay changed to a different provider in the last release. It seems a whole lot less accurate than the previous provider.

Last week, I came out of the subway and noticed that it was exceedingly hot. I checked PD and it said that it was only 70F. No way. I did a refresh and it came up with the same thing. A local bank had the temp posted and it was 89.

Right now, I'm looking at PD (says it's 75), my Vista widgets (says its 70), and (says its 71).

I would say it is not PD's fault but the weather provider they are using. I wish they would use Accuweather forecasts, maps and radar!

if you folks would post your zip codes, we will investigate these.

Toronto is off as well. Current weather is consistently low.

zip code 91103.

as a test, could you go into weather settings, go to the location code field where you have the zip code, press menu then lookup. Enter your city name, select the city and use the code that PD automatically puts there when you lookup.

mine is almost always right. Norwalk, CT

THE - we have identified the issue with zip code 91103. It should be corrected over the next few days by our provider.
