Inconsistent forecast

I keep getting alerts for heavy precipitation only to have a few sprinkles. Do better. Uninstalling.

Title

SeaOak

All the weather apps have inconsistent future weather patterns, problem with this app is they provide an hourly estimate they make no effort to update, this app currently reads 79 degrees at 12:12am, however the hourly reader says it should be 65 at 12am (12 minutes ago), and it will be 67 at 1am (best guess it's not gonna drop 12 degrees in 45 minutes). In other words this app is pretty much only useful for current temp, which you can find on many other apps or just putting a thermometer outside your window. Also I've been looking at the 5 day range for several weeks and they have been missing the mark pretty much everyday on the high and low. I know weather is difficult to predict but if they updated on a regular basis it would make this app better than the rest, but it doesn't so it's below average.

Fatal Flaw

DaveWWW

It's a great weather app, in fact, one of the best I've seen. But it has one huge, fatal and disqualifying flaw: Regardless of the community selected, the high and low temps for the day are always for Seattle. Any location you view will only show Seattle's high and low temps.

When I noticed this a while back, I brought it to the attention of one of their meteorologists via Twitter. He said he would pass it along to the app developer. Although they just updated the app, it is still showing only Seattle temps. For this reason, the app isn't very useful outside of Seattle.
