Notifications for All Locations
I recently started getting "Rain starting soon" and similar notifications for all my saved locations and nearby areas, meaning I am getting 20+ push notifications a day on a rainy day across my locations. I would love the ability to only get these notifications for my Current Location, as it is the only relevant location to me at the time.

We are working on a fix for this issue to include in the next release. Thank you for your valuable feedback.

Why am I getting weather notifications from places that I have never been to! Or that I have driven by? I only have current locations as saved! I get notifications all day and night! This is beyond rediculous! I just don't understand why you can't and haven't fixed this issue as it is a top posted issue and talked about all over social media! Plus this has never been a problem before as I have always used your weather app! Fix this please! If it was on your phone you would be going crazy just like your customers!

I traveled to Chicago by car 2 weeks ago. I added the city to my list prior to traveling so I could monitor weather for packing. I removed it when I returned. I am still getting notifications from Chicago and other cities along my driving route 2 weeks later with Chicago removed. It's very annoying!

I agree with the other comments. I traveled to London and now I get precipitation alerts for London and it is not even a location I have set. I drove from Nashville to Chattanooga and I also get notices for several small towns along that route. I live 600 miles away. There needs to be an option to select the locations you want alerts for specifically and not automatic. Fix the glitch or I'll go elsewhere.

I have the Android app on Nokia 8. I don't have any saved locations, just current location, and it has always been fine with precipitation alerts. However I now travel an hour on the train for work and I've started receiving notifications throughout the day when anywhere I travel through has rain (not just when travelling), including some villages I've never even heard of along the route.
Same here I am getting rain starting soon etc and other notifications for places I have been in the last couple of months but not in my saved or favorites just random places I've passed thru

I spent some time in Europe last month and ever since, I've been getting precipitation alerts for towns that I drove through (actually, only towns that I drove through on one specific day).
