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

    • Why can't I view my location's weather anymore?

      I used to be able to view my location fine and now I can no longer view it. It loads a different location then the one I am trying to view. The city is Brooklyn, NY (11230) and Bronx, NY (10453). They both load to New York, NY.

      • Date of weather

        Get the day correct! The weather site has the wrong day, every day for the current weather. Each day for current weather displays the DAY previous. This leads us to doubt the validity of the weather report and forecast.

          • Yes, you had a great map and radar system in your weather in motion. Now it looks like there is information missing.

            Change the weather in motion back to they system that was just up. There was more references and the maps were more exact with roadways and cross references....

              • Get it right

                This "experience appears to be terrible. I can't get my location to stay set as default, and when I click on extended forecast, I get the forecast for someplace called "Frenchie Place that I have no idea where it is.

                today when I started up my default location was Sunnyvale, CA, and I am in Montana.
