In order to load locations to be used with the Yahoo! Weather service, you need to enter each one in the following format:
Where "id" should be a unique value and not repeated between any of the cities. "name" is the name to be shown in the drop down, this doesn't need to be unique. "location_id" is the id used by Yahoo! Weather to get the forecast information.
To know the location id for specific places, go to that location in Yahoo! Weather and the location id is part of the url. For example, in the case of "Los Angeles" (http://weather.yahoo.com/forecast/USCA0638.html) the location id would be "USCA0638"
