    Wii Forecast Off?

    My Wii forecast says that it is going to be Sunny tomorrow. While Weather.com and my local news weather channel says its going to rain tomorrow. So, is the Wii forecast trustworthy?

    guess you'll find out tommorow .
    well remember its the overall weather so it might rain tommorow but be clear for most of the day...

    i check mine quite alot and it seems fairly accurate for my area.

    I have wondered this myself. I think the forecast channel is an automated system, so it just gives a ballpark figure of last year's weather compared to current weather trends. It's a neat feature, but I'd trust local weather service more than the Wii's. The only part of it that's probly accurate is the Current weather. 5 day forecast 'n stuff. I wouldn't even bother.

    I wish Nintendo had teamed up with Weather.com instead of some unknown company. As it stands the so-called "current" weather is always 3 or 4 hours behind.

    Actually, Wii forecast gets it's weather forecast from a specific site I believe.
    I'm not up for checking it right now, but go to the forecast channel, you really can't miss it.

    The forecast is not realtime information, man.

    Gets it from Weathernews.com

    I visited the site, Can't even look up your weather in that website.


    Oh well, I better just go back to using Weather.com.

    My Weather is always accurate. The 5 day forecast is almost perfect.

    If I put the city right next door to mine it'll say 10 degrees, now put it to Dallas (15-20 min away) and it'll pop up right (~40 degrees).

    So yeah, from my experience I wouldn't say it's very trustworthy.
