Where does Garmin get weather info?

I was wondering where the weather data that shows on my watch comes from? I'm guessing it just pulls data from the web via my phone. 

  • Welcome to the discussion Rick. This topic keeps popping up, with some heated discussion but little in the way of real conclusions. I think it's best to imagine it being delivered to your watch by cloud fairies.

    However, do have a search to find other discussions on here as they can be equally intriguing. And as I said to my friend the other day who asked "why isn't it raining?"  -- that was a weather forecast you read, not a statement of fact.
