Once that prediction page is up one
may click quite precisely on one's location on a map on the right side of the 
page for a
more accurate prediction.

That may work where it's flat, but not in mountainous areas.  I live in Redwood 
City, CA; downtown, where the temperature is recorded, is low and near the Bay; 
I live up in the hills where it is noticeably colder and windier (usually).  On 
the other hand, there have been days here when it was quite hot but you needed a 
hat and jacket to go to the ocean side of the peninsula just a few miles away.
