    Windows 10 Pro Desktop & Mobile - Weather App Highly Inaccurate for Perth, Australia

    Hello

    The weather app is really inaccurate in Perth, Western Australia. It seems to find the right location okay.

    Example:

    Wednesday 02 Dec - Weather App 29C/22 Partly Sunny - REAL from local weather bureau 36C/18C Mostly sunny

    Thursday 03 Dec - Weather app 25C/16C Sunny - REAL as above 32C/21C Humid possible early storm

    Friday 04 Dec - Weather app 21C/13C Sunny - REAL as above 27C/17C Possible shower

    As you can see the variances are substantial and you cannot really use the Weather app at all. I have Windows 10 on the desktop and on my Lumia 1520 and both have the same inaccurate data. I assume that wherever the data is being sourced from is not accurate
    or updated regularly.

    Cheers Mark

  3. Bing weather-very inaccurate

    yes, one of the first things I checked upon purchasing a brand new Microsoft based, HP Envy 23 computer is that upon asking for the weather to be corrected it would not let me. Though I could correct my location from London (it's preset for some unknown
    reason) to my home town in Southern CA., it did nothing to correct the data. So now I have So. Cal. data displayed as if it were London and cannot correct this. It tells me it will be foggy with a high of 71 when the truth was it was in the 90's here, with
    no, or quickly burning off fog, rapidly heating up into the 90's.

    So now it's automatic,readings on my auto MSN opening page say it is Laguna Niguel, with the data from London. VERY USEFULL don't you think to demonstrate the worth of my brand new very expensive computer, which almost all my friends have told me I was
    a fool to purchase at this ultra retail price. My defense was that my home pressure ( my wife mostly) long with the package of help sessions to teach me how to use this new machine was what they wanted. So far I have learned very little,. The "migration"
    I purchased from my old computer was tantamount to shaking up a garbage can and dumping the totally unorganized garbage onto the new computer including dozens of duplicated files, making the process of reorganizing all this mess nearly insurmountable, expecially
    for someone like my self who is an idiot as far as computer secret languages and procedures.

    My suggestion: don't buy any new computer! Make these companies offer a product that is usefull, understandable and transferable from older data bases.

    "We an no longer accept, " sorry we lost all the data you have been spending thousands of hours, saving, creating, and organizing because we don't use or offer, or understand that computer language today, after all it's 5 years old! What do you expect?
    (I could not stop overtype above, since the computer decides to start to destroy information it does not appreciate on it's own.)

    How long will all of you, (even teens, who's greatest loss may be their contact lists) still accept, allow and submit to this planned obsolescence and blatant business plan to make you buy new computers every couple of years!!?? Would you accept this for
    your cars?

    Windows 10 default Weather inaccurate

    Fine here - the temperature, and for now the weather too, but expecting plenty of autumnal showers.

    Is your location correct? How far away is your ISP?

    The weather should show the location being reported. Only other possibility is the data's coming from the wrong place, I suppose.

    Just think how much time you save- not needing to listen to weather forecasts or wondering whether to take a jacket or not... *Biggrin

  7. Yes, it's set to always detect my location, but where is the predictive info coming from?

    Since the "forecast" has been consistently "low" for at least the last month, it would seem to indicate that the source is not predicting for my actual location.

    Windows 10 default Weather inaccurate

    If the report specifies your location by name correctly, but the data is incorrect, it would be worth checking with someone else you know who uses '10 if they experience the same thing. If you both do, that suggests some sort of database error.

    Are you using Wifi or ethernet? This does make a difference as regards the accuracy of your location, but would only matter if your ISP were very remote. And in that case I'd guess the name of the location would also be different.

    Try asking Cortana 'What's the weather like in (name of your town/city etc)' and compare.

    Then try e.g. Google
    weather (your location)

    Is it detected correctly? 'My' location is often detected as that of my ISP which can be hundreds of miles away - and can change each time I reboot my router (they have several data centres, which one I get connected through is an apparently random choice).

    I manually set my default location and Weather uses that - usually it gives an accurate forecast.
     
  10. FYI - I would recommend you use any of the other weather apps where you can name your city.

  11. You would think that when you choose "always detect my location", it would do just that. When I first set my weather location "favorite", I can't remember if I used my city or zip code. I just added a new "favorite" using my address, and even tho the app now shows 2 favorites with the same city name, there is 2 degrees difference in the temp.

    The current weather report has never been the issue. I believe that the current reported temperature is fairly correct...Cortana is identical, google 1 degree off and accuweather 2 degrees off. that's typical off weather apps, some being more accurate than others, but It's puzzling how the "forecast" is so inadequate when it's set to detect my location, even if it is a more general location than when manually putting in the exact location. In that case I could accept a couple degrees off, but not what I have been experiencing.

    That's the advice I came here for. Recomendations to other apps.

  12. Windows Weather app does not really uses your real location, but something that is closest to it.
    Mine is about 3C degrees off. I prefer to check weather online anyway, I do not need to know it 24/7.

    Is the weather in your region particularly variable within a comparatively short geographical distance?
     
    dalchina, Sep 12, 2017

  15. I would say somewhat, probably like anywhere else, give or take a few degrees within, say, a five-ten mile radius. Then the source has to be taken into consideration. It's one thing altogether to compare the results from one source, and then to compare the results from various sources, when I've seen huge discrepancies. Last time I tried this was testing out phone apps, and some of them were outright useless.

    But like I said, it's really about the predictions, from the default windows app, Definitely something wrong there for some time now.
