What seemed most curious is that the forecast temperatures and sky conditions don't match between the app and what's posted on the website (not to mention that both forecasts were a day light in being updated). For example, on Friday evening at 11:45 p.m., here's what displayed on the app and website:
|From Fox9 Weather App|

Our guess is that the source for the app's weather forecast is not made by the on-air mets. The app appears to be produced by the WSI Corporation, which produces weather forecasts of its own through places like Intellicast.com. Fox needs to square this issue before it can expect its mobile phone viewers to take the new app seriously.
