tidy interface - more stable than the Apple Weather widget. Thanks - I'm enjoying it.

The author needs to realise that the Australian Capital Territory is not a part of New South Wales anymore than the Northern Territory is part of Queensland or that Wales is a part of England.

Aside from that, I can't specify my location as precisely as with Apple's widget. With Apple's widget, I can specify Tuggeranong in the ACT. Tuggeranong often has differences of up to 3 degrees with the other weather stations, Belconnen and Canberra Airport. This `bug' could be fixed by splitting the ACT off into it's own sub menu, like the other states and territories, wherein you have the three ACT weather stations.

I find Apple's Weather widget quite accurate. I've narrowed it down to my suburb and find it very precise.

If you go to the site Apple's Weather widget gets its info from you can get more detail than the icon-only forecast as well, but i agree that it is nice to not have to open the browser for that level of detail.
