Yahoo.com front page continually shows wrong weather location

I change it to the correct location. It accepts it. I refresh the page. Wrong location returns. Clear cookies. Repeat. Same thing.

Thanks for your suggestion O

That doesn't work. Keeps sending me to a town 10 miles away.

Plain and simple, I keep my expectations very low when using yahoo.

I have the same issue and have done the same steps that you have. My only answer is Yahoo doesn't care about this issue. Since they are getting bought out, they could careless about minor issues like this.

The Yahoo front page will NOT show the accurate weather. I enter the right location, SAVE, it reverts to the incorrect location. Period.

I can't even add San Francisco. It wants to give me Phillipines or Brazil. Amazingly poor program.
