On my igoogle home page, I use Weather Bug to show the temperature for Cookeville, TN, where we live and Novi, Michigan where YD lives. Here's the thing. The temp and forecast displayed ARE NOT FOR COOKEVILLE. Nope. They are for Crossville, 40 miles away and 800 feet high in elevation. So when the temp appears to be 78 degrees in Cookeville, that is really the temp in Crossville.
The odd thing is that Novi's forecast temperature is 94 degrees and they have a weather alert. Crossville/Cookeville's forecast is 94 degrees and no weather alert. Believe me, if they are forecasting 94 degrees at an elevation of 2000 feet, that is worthy of a weather alert!
