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.

Also help change the way over a billion people experience the world every month. Join our Yahoo Yodeler Community and be the first to try new Yahoo products and let us know what you think. To learn more or register, visit the Yodelers Website.

        • 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?

                                    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.

                                    You still can't come up with the correct location. What I can't figure out is the one you come up with is different every day. I really doubt my ISP site changes every day. PLEASE just let people pick what they want and make it stick. If they move their computer then let THEM pick the new location IF THEY WANT. Maybe they could care less about the weather at their temporary location. WTF it can't be that complicated. Other weather sites do it.

                                      • Allow user to set their account to their Location Via Mobile or Home Computer/Laptop PC system then LOCK THAT LOCATION as it does change

                                        I am required to RESET my current location with the Weather Channel App you provide. Example "I may set Charlotte, NC as Home location. Next time, I log in I may get some far off city in middle of isis cris and their current weather conditions. This is a pain the *** since 1. I don't have absolutely NO desire to meet those JERKS running that SATANIC CULT they call isis. Especially after what they have done to fellow Americans.
