For your icons, right click the desktop and check to see if "automatically align" or "snap to grid" is selected. If they are, unselect them.

You may not be able to. I live about an hours drive outside a capital city and weather isn't available for my local area, I need to just forecasts for the capital and assume it's close enough.
