In the interest of balancing useful information and battery life, the News and Weather widget in Android (for example) updates as soon as the widget is viewed after sleep. The last Weatherbug update included some way to share your weather socially. I have one app that updates every time they add an asian keyboard. With Android doing at least 4 versions - things are bound not to work on at least one update.
That's the exact widget I also use, but what Cabal says makes sense, maybe the date is crippled on purpose to save battery, if this is the case then it's not that hard to just push the little circle everytime I wake up my phone, but it would be nice if it updated automatically when I fire-up the phone. I've seen tablet owners wanting back to Honeycomb since apps don't work - same with phone.
S., I have mine set "every hour" and still doesn't update)My wife bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 with a built-in weather widget from "Accu Weather" and it's even more pathetic, it does NOT update weather conditions until you push this little circle on the widget.
It will show you the weather from pm in the afternoon while it's already pm Is there a smartphone and a corresponding widget that will update the weather every 30 mins on it's own or when you turn the phone "on"? (and no there was NO a data or wi-fi interruption to say that's the reason for this)I don't know what app you are using but it's showing you the forecast.

An application component that is able to hold other App Widgets is called an App Widget host. This document describes how to publish an App Widget using an App Widget provider.

If the forecast is not updated then you will still have the same info on your phone.
It's not like someone is looking outside in your area and updating Accuweather.
