Bob,

When I open up my browser (Firefox, Bing, Chrome) my location for weather says "DMA Seattle Tacoma", but I am in the Sacramento area.

it is likely based on the IP address (or physical address if identifiable) of the closest identifiable hop on the network to you. This would be an address owned by your network provider.

It would seem that they are registered in Seattle.

In my case it usually shows up as a location within a couple of km of my true location. The corp HQ of the company is in Alberta, not BC.
