    Default Default weather widget showing incorrect location

    Lately the weather widget has been showing the wrong location when I turn my phone on. While in Staten Island, NY the weather widget shows Bayonne, NJ. The two locations aren't that far apart from each other, but why is the widget showing Bayonne, NJ when that isn't where I am located. It will show the correct location if I refresh the data or if I wait the default of 4 hours for it to automatically refresh. Another instance is if I happen to be in Manhattan, the widget shows Bayonne, NJ instead of New York, NY. Is this happening because the phone is pulling a signal from a tower in Bayonne?

    There are only three options under location services, and all three were already checked.
