Alexa not providing local weather when asked
« on: August 28, 2022, 08:56:47 am »
I have a FIRE HD8 tablet that I use in Show Mode.

I live in Columbus, Ohio in a "Neighborhood" named Clintonville. 

When I ask Alexa for the weather, it gives me the weather for Clintonville, Wisconsin.

I have the correct address for the location of the device, and whenever I use my laptop at work, it gives me the correct (Columbus) weather.

I am at a loss to correct this issue.

I am not sure how to fix it but the work around is give the city you want the weather for.   For example, Alexa, What is the weather for Columbus Ohio?

You can try sending feedback to the Alexa devs. Just say "Alexa, send feedback." Then tell them what's wrong.
