    I love BW and what it adds to my home screen, I just wonder if others have this same issue. I believe once it passed the sunset time, it used to read "clear" if there were no clouds in the sky at night. For whatever reason, now it chooses to read "sunny", as it is currently at 1:48 AM local time. It's really no more than a minor annoyance, but I just wanted to see if it happened to others as well.

    It's 5:12 AM where I am right now and BW reads "clear" as expected, with a picture of the moon. My only thought on why yours is stuck on "sunny" is that maybe a task killer is killing off the BW update service? Do you use a task killer? If so, make sure to exclude BW from being killed.

    5:32am and it is slightly clouds, dark, no moon.

    You could try going into the weather screen where you can click the menukey then click refresh. That will let you know if its a refresh issue or if the sun never sets on you;)

    To answer the questions, I don't use any form of task killer, and I have it set for hourly refresh but I do refresh manually when I see "sunny" displayed as the text. It stays.

    The icon, however, is correct. At the time of the sunset it swaps over to the moon, but the text still reads "sunny."

    It's always sunny in Milwaukee, I guess. :)

    Maybe I'll try clearing cache or uninstalling and reinstalling if I'm bored someday.

    Its not a problem with BW specifically, it is a problem with where BW gets its weather information. My BW currently says its foggy and has said so for the last 24 hours (we very rarely ever get fog where I am)

    A quick look at the weather widget on my igoogle page shows the same thing.

    Google's weather information is messed up, and thats where BW pulls its information from. The developer for BW has stated he is looking into getting the weather info from another source as this is the second time in the last month this has started happening.

    Indeed, and I am adding that new source right now :) I am working very hard to get the update coming, I already coded the city search, then I need to gather the data, and finally display them!

    Trying to do my best to have it working asap, but without bugs hopefully!

    Thanks for working on it so hard. Nothing bugs me more than looking at my phone and seeing its 88*F outside when in reality its 105. :)

    I'm anxiously waiting for your update because I love my beautiful widgets! Home screen just doesn't look right with out.

    Didn't expect a dev response in this petty little thread of mine. :)

    Love BW, and thanks for the hard work and updates!!

    i thought i was the only one with this problem.

    i was freaking out cos i killed the widget, didn't help, uninstalled and reinstalled and still the same.

    it has not been 75 and raining for the last three days, it's nothing but sun and face-melting 100+ degree weather.
