We can't change the station.  It is usually the nearest airport weather station.  I live at least 30 miles from mine.

Re: xfinity home touchpad weather choice

I chatted with an Xfinity rep who told me that my touchpad weather info is based on Midway Airport (MDW) in Chicago, which is 22 miles away.  So my display is not Chicago's officail weather station (ORD), but one that Comcast deems is closer.  However, closer airport, with a full weather station, only 13 miles away, is LOT.  When I choose my weather staion online I choose the closer airprort.  

 

1) I wish this information could be configured from  the Xfinity Home web page interface, instead of assumng that Big Brother, err, I mean Comcast, makes the best choice its customers.

 

2) How about adding just three letters in the margin of the fancy weather display to identify the data source (like MDW for Midway Airport).
