All of a sudden in 2019 the weather app is a mess. All my stored locations are gone! My location won't stay as set - I have to reenter my location everytime…..what happened? Looks like many have complained and no fix yet!

Can anyone tell me how to set the default location for weather on Yahoo? I change location to my hometown, but it when I go back to the Yahoo splash page, it has reverted back to the previous incorrect location.

Yahoo formerly had a Yahoo Weather app. Then OATH bought Yahoo. Then OATH stopped supporting Yahoo Weather, and now uses The Weather Channel. (The same thing happened to Comcast/Xfinity in early 2019. Slowly, TWC began adding back features that users had previously enjoyed, such as favorite locations.)
This week, Weather started correctly showing my current location, but still will not allow the Favorite 'star' to be populated, and will not allow any additional favorite locations to be added. Links to the Privacy Dashboard are a joke, and do not provide any of my favorite locations.
Finally, to illustrate this absurd roll-out of The Weather Channel for Yahoo Weather, the page for Weather correctly displays my current location (likely determined by Windows, not Yahoo), but the location in the Title Bar is shown as "Topeka, United States - Weather Forecasts | Maps | News - Yahoo Weather". I am on the West Coast!
