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

  1. Kosovo is an independent State.

    Dear Yahoo Weather,

    Your description of my location is inaccurate.
    We are a different country from Serbia. We have nothing to do with Serbia. Kosovo is an independent State. Kosovo is recognized by 111 UN Member states. I hope Yahoo will fix this bug soon.

    Thank You

          Bring back the Hourly Forecast the way it had been done before today. You used to show the hourly forecast for the next couple of days, not just a few hours for today. The old Hourly Forecast was very useful. The new hourly forecast is much less useful. Why do you keep changing how you present the weather forecast? Bring back the format that existed before today.

          • Hourly and extended forecast

            Well, you've had enough comments asking you to leave the webpage the same.

            Meaning the hourly forecast and extended forecast etc. We went through this about a month ago, and then you changed it back.

            What exactly is the problem? Is somebody their bored and needs something to do?

            Again, please change the webpage back as everyone is requesting, and just leave it alone.

            • Stop Changing the page!

              Why do you keep changing the weather web site? Every time you make changes the "hourly look" goes away. That's one of the best links on the page.

              You've changed the way to switch locations, Why?

              On the "weather in motion" display, lose the GMT time. You know my location, show my local time, like you did just yesterday.

              Much more of this and I'll find a new weather site.

                  • Old Hourly Forecast

                    Bring back the previous format for the hourly forecast. I do not like the format which appeared today. It provides much less info. than the old format.

                        Please put the hourly back the way it was. It worked for those of us with actual outdoor activities. Send the propeller head intern out for coffee.

                        • put the extended forecast button back. I can not find it

                          You removed the extended forecast button. When I click on Bootjack, CA for example there is no extended forecast button and the days you have listed do not provide the same info as the extended forecast did.

                              Every time you make a change to the Weather you make it worse. I like seeing the settle light picture especially when you can review the entire world. Than you can tell if a storm is on its way. Why would you take that away. A picture of today's weather is not helpful, i can look out the wind to see what today's weather is like. And I don't your green spots on a map to tell me where the rain is. I want to be able to see what is on the way!

                                      • Alerts on Changes to API

                                        Using the weather API and suddenly it's busted (3/23/16) and not returning anything... what did you change and WHY do you have to keep changing it? Perhaps you should establish a feedback system where you alert users/developers of any changes to the API and WHY you decided to mess with what was working fine... just sayin
