    Default Accuweather Widget - temperature is completely wrong

    This isn't another "my widget data won't update" thread. That part works fine.

    The problem is, I'm finding that the current temperature is wrong. Right now, it is 24 degrees per accuweather.com. My widget (which i just manually updated) says 8 degrees. This is a huge swing. Yesterday it said temperatures were below zero, when the actual was 15 degrees.

    What I find most puzzling is the temperature values are not exactly what you'd see on the accuweather website.

    Welcome to AC Forums!
    Are you sure you put the correct city in the widget?

    Sometimes the weather station is offline and the system needs to do a interpolation between the near stations that are online and the system outputs different parameters than actually are. Perhaps not always is true but it can happen.

    Understood the explanation but the real temp is 23 degrees, not 73. That's a huge difference.
    Are there places with temps of 73 deg Celsius? No places near me here in South Africa.
    Anyways I've emailed them (AccuWeather) so will post should I get a reply.

    I have the same problem, but this is since installing KitKat o/s upgrade. It also cause the phone to be sluggish. Drawing your pattern to unlock the phone for example takes long to respond.

    But back to Accuweather. I have tried removing the widget and putting it back, no go. Occasionally it will just show this way out temperature (impossible - 69C and we would all be medium well done by now! When you refresh manually it comes right. Very frustrating.

    I have the exact same issue with the weather widget, as well as my phone has been sluggish, and will occasionally freeze on me. I was blaming the recent facebook update as the source, since that is where my phone would always freeze up, but it has recently started freezing in other places. Anyways, let me know if you get anything figured out and I will do the same!

    OK, so this is treating the symptoms and not the cause. I have been able to do the following:

    Disable the faulty built-in widget (it was 80 degrees Celsius yesterday and the heat was getting unbearable!)
    Install Accuweather's latest software including 2 new much more meaningful widgets.

    To disable the faulty one (you cannot uninstall it - weird) go to Settings -> More -> Application Manager -> All (scroll along the top) and look in the list for "Weather". It will complain terribly but disable it...

    Now go to Playstore and download Accuweather's latest app. Has a big red sun as logo.

    Reboot your phone. Note the reboot may take extremely long for it to time out certain things but it will eventually boot.

    Final comment - dejavu of my old Blackberry days...wonder if some ex-Blackberry developers are now on Android...who calls an O/S KitKat anyway...

    Guys i solved the issue with the insanly high temperature...
    1. Open Settings->More->Application Manager.
    2. Go to "Running" tab.
    3. Click "Show cached processes".
    4. Find "Weather Widget" process and stop it.
    5. After that the process will restart itself and you will not be annoyed by crazy degrees.

    Enjoy!

    Thanks for this info! I came here because my pre-installed AccuWeather app would never update--well, maybe after a week or so! And I couldn't figure out how to change the time for Daylight Savings! Thanks again!
