Does anyone use the weather information on the MyLot homepage? I just had a look, and it is telling me that it is 1 degree celcius (that's just a teeny bit above freezing point) and overcast in Sydney. It's using a cookie, so it must know I'm in Sydney, Australia. Well, I'm looking outside and it is a fine sunny day and more like 20 degrees celcius (comfortable to walk around in a T-shirt)! Even overnight we didn't get nearly down to 1 degree. Is anyone getting an accurate reading for their area?

I sometimes look at the weather, but generally not. About the only time I really care what the weather is doing is if I am going fishing and then usually I use the weather channel website because I usually plan days in advance and make my plans according to the predicted weather.

I must say I wouldn't probably have even noticed except that the low, low temperature caught my eye. Here we are still surprised by a forecast of rain. We've just finished a long rainy spell of over a week, but we are still in the drought mentality. We also like to know the temperature if it gets very cold or very hot so we can talk about it!

We generally dont need a forcast for the temperature, especially during the summer. We only have two temperatures, hot and hotter.

Lol! I guess it makes it easier to work out what to wear. It's funny, just after I posted about us talking about extreme weather, it was all over the news that we had the coldest Sydney April night for 25 years. See what I mean - it's news here!

The weather is accurate for where I live. The puzzling thing is the reading is in Celsius for the current temperature, but the forecast is in Fahrenheit. Is there any way of changing it so all of the temps use the same scale?

Thank you! Very smart and a big + for you (well, actually I give a big + to everyone who is kind enough to respond to my discussions, but well, THANKS!). I did that and now it is local. Much better. I chose Celsius, but is still wants to give me the forecast in Fahrenheit. That's okay, it will give me good practise in converting. Thanks for being on the ball.
