Confused about the weather

My Alienware runs RHEL 5 with GNOME and my Sun runs Solaris 10 with GNOME.  Both have the little GWeather applet in the toolbar.  Both applets point to the same ZIP code and the same weather feed.  However, all morning my RHEL box has said “Mist” for Milwaukee while my Solaris box has said “Light Drizzle:”

Solaris 10 GNOME Weather Applet

Why should these two apps, using the same data source, display different data?
