Help & Feedback

Welcome to SKYE on AOL

SKYE on AOL brings a whole new way to experience the weather, and while lots of things are the same, there are lots of new features and functionalities. Here are some answers to your most frequently asked questions are below as well as some information on the new areas and functionality on the site. And we would always love for you to send us feedback.

So, we hope you like the enhancements we've made and look forward to hearing your feedback.

Why can't I save non-U.S. cities as a primary or a saved city?

At this time, the identifier used by aol.com to recall your weather settings is based on a US zip code. In the interest of creating a consistent experience for you between aol.com and weather.aol.com we have turned off the ability to save a non-US city. In the future we will update the aol.com identifier to be global, not US specific.

Why can't I get my cities to save?

You may need to delete your cookies or clear your browser cache. If you are using Internet Explorer, click on Internet Options underneath the Tools toolbar. If you are using Mozilla Firefox you click Clear Private Data under the Tools toolbar. After doing this, save your primary again. If you are using the AOL software: depending on the version of the AOL software you are using, it could take a few more steps to fully clear your cache.

Location Forecast Overview

We have a whole new Location Forecast page.

To add a city, there is a blue plus just to the right of the Location name. Clicking the plus will add the city to your Place Bar, with your other saved cities.

If there is no Blue Plus, it is either an Non-US City (See why you can't save a Non-US City) OR you have already saved it. Saved places are manageable through the small blue icon just to the left of the search box.

To control whether you see Today's Forecast, Hourly, Social, Weekend or 7-day Forecasts, use either the two arrows on either edge of the screen of the tabs under the Forecast data.

To pick the weather term you feel best describes the weather where you are now, click the Plus Speech Bubble under the current temp.

For Expanded Forecasts (Today's, Hourly, Weekend and 7-day) and Weather Maps, scroll down the page.
