Reorganize your favorites to make the most of the new homepage. After clicking View All on either the Cam Carousel or the Forecast Outlook tools, you'll see an Edit Favorites button. Bringing your top 5 spots to the top of your favorites list will bring the new homepage to life.


Sub-region filtering. As mentioned above, you can now filter the favorites shown by geographical region. If going on a trip, or honing in on some promising conditions, get rid of the favorites you have saved elsewhere.
  • You can select multiple sub-regions
  • The sub-regions that show are based on the favorites you have saved
