    2. “Alexa, what's the weather for this weekend”
    3. “Alexa, what's the weather in Seattle, Washington”

   Previous  Next 


   To get started, add your address in the Alexa app. Then, just ask Alexa "What's the weather?" or "What's the weather in [city, state or city, country]?" You can also ask about weather on a specific day or about inclement weather conditions. When you ask about the weather, a card opens in the Alexa app with a seven-day forecast for the requested location. Alexa uses AccuWeather for the latest weather information.
   This skill uses the device location set in the Alexa App settings.

   How are ratings calculated?
   To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.

   2.0 out of 5 stars Where is Alexa getting her weather report from? 
   Reviewed in the United States on November 5, 2019
   The highs and lows she reports are inaccurate. What is the source? Can we change it?

   1.0 out of 5 stars Most inaccurate weather reporting that I have seen. 
   Reviewed in the United States on April 12, 2020
   I have my own Acurite weather reporting station as well as being connected to Weather Underground which gives me access to weather conditions in my county and state. For the most part, when I ask Alexa for the local weather, I get a temperature report that can be as far off as ten degrees Fahrenheit. Just the other day, I got a weather alert for strong thunderstorms. It came at around thirty minutes after the warning had expired. I can't say that it was useful at all. In all, I am very disappointed in the way Alexa handles weather reporting.

   1.0 out of 5 stars Least reliable weather app 
   Reviewed in the United States on July 16, 2017
   The Accu-weather app is notorious for having the worst forecasts. The system is totally computerized and their reports are "untouched by human hands". The temperature can be off by 7-10F and the "rain" never arrives when it's supposed to. I wish we could SELECT our default weather app; there are many available that are more reliable (it wouldn't take much to beat what we have now).

   1.0 out of 5 stars Weather Data Source is Way Off 
   Reviewed in the United States on July 7, 2017
   Not sure what the weather source is but for coastal California this data is way off. Here the temp difference can be up to 10 degrees different just by moving inland by a few miles. Alexa's weather is seems to never be the beach weather, always the inland weather.

   1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible accuracy 
   Reviewed in the United States on June 21, 2020
   Alexa never has the weather right. She tells me it’s raining when it is not, and if I ask other times if it will rain she tells me the time and it never comes. She has other weather issues, but I wanted to use rain for my example. To get accurate weather I have to ask Alexa to ask Big Sky the weather... UGH

   1.0 out of 5 stars So far - always wrong 
   Reviewed in the United States on June 4, 2020
   10' off or more on a regular basis. I do have to say though, since I've noticed it is never accurate I'm actually rather impressed that it is wrong almost 100% of the time I check it. San Jose CA is not that hard. My three aps on Iphone are all within a couple of degrees but to have to look at my Echo constantly lying to me is really an issue when I think of the name behind it being Amazon. Not at all what I would expect.

   1.0 out of 5 stars Real time temperature is consistently off by 9 degree in Bay Area, July 2017 
   Reviewed in the United States on July 15, 2017
   The most used feature of our four Amazon echo is to ask the current temperature. Reading the outdoor temperature is important because California outdoor temperature varies up to 30 degree in one day. Echo has been providing accurate current temperature reading similar to that of in last two years. However, in this month (July 2017), it has been proving a consistent much lower temperature reading than the reading of my outdoor thermamator and that of I have tweaked the zip codes to different parts of Bay Area. And all of them have consistent much lower readings than that of Please please fix the problem.
