TO EVERYONE: We are working on our latitude/longitude searches and looking for feedback. What are latitude/longitude searches you have done where you got a result different than what you were expecting? Please provide examples so we can test our new searches.

Follow up: When doing a latitude/longitude search where the search location has no weather observation, should the "display city" be the searched latitude/longitude or the location of the nearest weather observation (which is where the weather is actually being observed)? The potential here is that the "display city" could be miles from the nearest observation location.

Example case:
When searching for 40.78691,-119.214462 the "display location" is Empire, which is 22 miles away. It seems the correct response should be "display location" is Black Rock City because that is the latitude/longitude search, with the "observation city" as Empire because that is where the weather is being observed.

Here is a map to illustrate the point: http://goo.gl/maps/nO4bY
