Yahoo Weather

The Yahoo Weather API is being retired. A replacement is the darksky weather.

The yweather platform uses Yahoo Weather as a source for current meteorological data. This component will show you the condition and temperatures for max. 10 days.

Use of the Yahoo Weather API should not exceed reasonable request volume. Access is limited to 2000 signed calls per day.


The woeid (Where On Earth ID) for your location, as shown in the example below. You can find your WOEID by copying the numeric digits at the end of the URL for your location at Yahoo Weather. If you don’t add a WOEID, it will be generated from Home Assistant’s latitude and longitude.

To add Yahoo Weather to your installation, add the following to your configuration.yaml file:

# Example configuration.yaml entry
  - platform: yweather

Configuration Variables


(integer)(Optional)Your Where On Earth ID, see above for all the info.

This platform is an alternative to the yweather sensor.

Details about the API are available in the Yahoo! Developer Network.
