I’ve noticed an interesting trend in weather reporting for the past few weeks, ever since the media started pushing the “heat wave” crap.
Here are temperatures being reported in my area. Those are private weather stations. Most of them used to be in fairly close agreement with temps at my place. (An exception being an Osprey Cove — yankee-transplant ghetto — station that seems to be positioned beside an AC unit.)
I say “used to.” Currently my two thermometers — an alcohol type, and a bimetallic strip dial type — both say the current temperature is 83 degrees Fahrenheit.
The lowest area temp reported by Weather Underground is 87.8. Everything else is in the nineties. We never went above 85 today; it’s been mostly overcast. I think my local temp only made it to the nineties one day this month; it’s been unusually cool lately.
Has anyone else noticed any discrepancies between the temp you see versus what gets reported online?
