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. Can we get local photos back?

    What happened to the local photos for selected locations? Nice feature. Missing for a few days now.

      • PLEASE HIRE A COMPETENT METEOROLOGIST

        Dear Yahoo Weather,
        I hope this message finds you well. Over the past few months I have been using on your weather forecast to attempt to plan my days, or even just see what the weather will be like. And while I understand that predicting nature’s moves accurately is a difficult task, at least some precision would be greatly appreciated. I’d assume that with today’s satellite technology it would not be an overly challenging task to see whether it will rain all night or not. Being a doctor, pharmacist or a teacher is very difficult as well, however I don’t…

        • Arrangenent of page items

          Either stack the items in Yahoo Weather like they were a few days ago or move the column
          of repetitious ads further to the right side of the screen so that the Monthly avg. temps. and pricep. for Dec. can be viewed. Some of us use that feature (Monthly averages), for trip planning and more than a few folks DO travel in December...

            • Local time stamp PLEASE!

              This is such a NO brain er; why not show the local time for each location? Hello?
              If you know the local temperature, and can show daytime or nighttime scenes, why not list the local time?
              This is such a simple, yet very much oversight of an otherwise great site!

                Include local time. Useful for "My destinations" when you want to know weather and time for your favorite locations.

                • Simple fix needed for weather.yahoo.com search box!

                  At weather.yahoo.com, when I enter a location or zip code into the box at the top of the page and press ENTER, it pulls up a Y! search INSTEAD of showing the weather for the inputted location. Please fix this very basic and frustrating problem. All I want to do is pull up the weather for a given location - why should that be so hard to do?

                          • making the weather link better

                            It's nice to know the "temperature".
                            Better to know "wind" (some of my jobs include outdoors painting), but
                            Absolute very best would be to know "rain" (I have motorcycle).

                                      • Ads suck !

                                        How about sticking the ads up your *****. One is bad enough but for every video I click on I have to wait for another one. Sorry guys you just lost me. I'm not sitting around being bombarded by ads. This is the weather site not a ******* TV station. If I wanted ads I just veg out in front of the telly not the computer.

                                        • Inaccurate weather forecasts from Yahoo.

                                          I am finding it impossible to make contact with yahoo for some help/complaint resolution!! I am a builder in NZ and use yahoo weather to check out weather forecasts. These are critical for me to manage my work schedule. They are frequently very wrong. I struggle to understand how the forecasters continually get it so wrong. I am no expert yet I can look at various maps and about 90% of the time pick the weather. Yet Yahoo forecasts would be lucky to get it right 50% of the time. Why supply information when it is continually so wrong. Yahoo…
