Google Weather Search Weblet Worked on Android but not on iPhone

Google introduced a neat little HTML 5 mobile browser trick.

Weather on your mobile phone, now with added fun

Searching for “weather” on the Google.com site on an Android or iPhone results in formatted display like the example to the left that resembles the output of dedicated weather apps. The slider lets you see hour-by-hour forecasts.

However, although it worked as described in Android’s web browser, it did not correctly identify my location when I used an iPhone 4 (and yes, location services was turned on). Searching for “weather” brought up the preformatted weather page but it provided weather for San Francisco which several thousands miles away.
