My thermometer is computerized so it has to be accurate.

It agrees with the water in the dog's bowl.

I am generally 8 degrees F colder than the official forecast for Phoenix, which is for
the weather station at Sky Harbor Airport, in one of the warmest parts of our metro

The US National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has a weather site at
which allows one to input a city or postal Zip code. 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. All the other weather sites get their information from the
NOAA so why not cut out the middleman?
