    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!

    This Yahoo Weather behavior began 11/23 or 11/24/2018, and continued through that weekend. I was able to make changes using the "Detect My Location" pop-up dialogue box, but they didn't take effect until Monday, 11/26/2018, presumably when the Yahoo/Oath staff went back to work after the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. The corrections worked only for a day, then returned to the erroneous behavior of detecting my location far from here.

    The Yahoo Weather and profile settings no longer include the ability to list all of the locations that I monitor, and to customize that list. Poor design change, and frustrating!

    I use the Yahoo Weather that is in My Yahoo, and have for years. It is unfortunate that changes have reduced its usefulness, and accuracy. I hope Yahoo staff will fix this omission, soon.
