    Hi...I have Weather Watcher set for Massena NY where I live, but the place where you enter Massena NY is OK but when you look at the weather it shows Canton NY which is about 30 miles away. I have checked several times and Massena is entered but it still shows Canton NY. It used to be OK. Did it on its own. Any thoughts ? Larry

    If Weather Watcher Live is unable to retrieve the feed from your preferred station it will use the next closest one.
    My station is one block away at a High School, but apparently during the summer the school shuts the station down, so WWL retrieves the next closest one at the airport about two miles away.
    At least this way you won't receive an error message saying 'unable to retrieve feed'.
