Sometimes you guys can be tough customers. Like this comment on a 5-year-old article that explains how to delete a weather location from Accuweather.

“That doesn’t work for my ZTE phone in deleting cities, so come up with something that works.”

Yes, Ma’am. I’ll get on it. I’m not sure where you’re getting hung up in the process, it’s pretty similar to what’s described in the old article, but I’ll walk you step-by-step how to do it in the most recent version of the Android Accuweather app. Start by opening your Accuweather app and clicking the 3-line menu button at the top-left corner.


Find the location you wish to delete, then press down and hold.


A garbage can icon should appear to the right of the location. Tap the garbage can to delete the location. You can also re-order the locations once the arrows appear to the left by simply swiping them up and down.


The location should then disappear.


You need to have at least one default location selected. After all, the app can’t tell you the weather if it doesn’t know where you’re at.

Now, you can’t get rid of your current location if you have current location turned on in the app. But you can turn it off. Click the three-dot menu to the top-right of the app.


Select Settings from the drop-down menu.


Then choose Locations.


Then switch it off by moving the slider button.


If your app keeps selecting a location close to where you are, but not exactly, it may be pinging off the closest cell tower. The forecast should be valid, but you might find it annoying to have the wrong city. Try choosing Find Me (GPS) from the drop-down menu.


If none of these solutions help, please grab a screenshot of what you see when you try this process and send it to me.
