New Location Experience for Weather

Great news!

We have recently launched an often requested feature in Yahoo Weather, the ability to choose your own current location.

Yahoo Weather will now ask you to confirm that we’ve correctly detected your current location. If it is not correct you can ask Yahoo Weather to detect it again. If it is still not accurate you will be asked to manually enter your current location. After you’ve set it, Yahoo will associate that location information with your account and IP address, meaning anytime you sign in from the same location we will remember your location for Yahoo Weather, but you will be asked again if you are traveling. This location will be persistent across any browser used on that system.

Please note: As some of this data is stored as cookies on your system, and clearing your cookies will clear your set location. We recognize that this is not ideal, and are working on improving this functionality in the near future.

Best Regards,
Yahoo Product Support

          • Let me set my location for weather, since Yahoo can't get it right. How hard can that be?

            I follow Support's instructions on to set my location, but every time I log out of Yahoo and log back in, my weather location reverts to some place I never heard of. I understand that my location is set using a cookie, but it's a little hard to believe that my cookies are being cleared on such a regular basis. I'm sure not clearing them.
            And even if they are being cleared all the time, Yahoo still manages to remember my user name and other information about me, so why can't it remember my location? Isn't my zip code one…

                  • Your new weather page is a mess. It is impossible to set my current location. It used to work. What changed?

                    How about making the weather page work like it did before you changed it. It used to open to my current location, but now it never does. Why did you turn something that worked into something that doesn't work? You say clearing cookies eliminates my current location, but it didn't used to do that. So why don't you just go back to how you did it before, when it used to work?
