Bug Description

This is very nice. However..
I just walked in back in after a nice outing. It is 26 degree (C) outside. According to Environment Canada weather report, that is the temperature, with a light wind of 22km/hour, SW. The weather clock says 10 degrees (C) and 18.5 km/h SE.
Go figure. I wonder where the data comes from.
(I suppose this is NOT a linux bug, but I am using Hardy modified by Dell on a Dell 12 mini)

Same here. I just unstalled 9.04 64-bit with recent updates and have noticed that the weather is not being updated by World Clock applet. The weather applet works fine, yet World Clock will require me to go through "Settings -> Locations -> Edit" routine in order to update weather information. And unlike weather applet there is no control to set weather update interval in World Clock applet.

What is the clock location that you are using? A few locations have been fixed with the karmic updates. Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the update.
I had to change machines (we thought it was defective but t was a bug in
Ubuntu, apparently still there) and have not ried the wjeather report
again (after all, it was not working).
I will check and let you know next week (no time this week).
