My wife and I have identical G5 iMacs, about 20 feet apart.
On hers, the Apple supplied weather widget says it's 0 degrees outside.
Mine says it's 5 degrees.

Hers leads to this URL...
(www)a.accuweather.com/index-world-forecast.asp?partner=apple&zipcode=EURŠUKŠUK001ŠPORTSMOUTHŠ

Mine has semicolons instead of pipes.

Hers goes to a webpage that says the temperature in Pompey is 0 degrees.
Mine says it's 5.
Same place - different temperature
What on EARTH is going on here?

Well, they're 20 ft apart, right? Well, hers is reading the temp outside of her room and yours is reading outside of your room. And, no matter where you go, there will be 5 degrees difference 20ft away from each other...Just kidding...

Probably hers grabbed the info from one server on accuweather and yours another and they have a discrepancy. You could restart and see if it changes...
