Temperatures displayed on map are wrong
Possible data issue.
In central Texas, the temperatures displayed in my region are in the order of 10° F higher than my weather station records which tracks with weather.gov. This seems to be affecting a broad area. The whole region is showing much warmer than actual. Could there be a data issue?
@corkshop Hello, what kind of values do you mean? We visualize forecast based on local and global weather models and the values differ based on the selected model. If you are talking about weather stations, those stations report measured values.
@korina the temperature data being reported by windy for my location yesterday was off by +10-12° F from those shown by US Weather Service, Wunderground, AccuWeather, and my personal weather station. Windy was reporting something like 43° F vs the freezing temperatures in throughout the region. I also realized the data being reported on Windy for the major Texas cities had similar biases. Today’s data is much closer to the other weather sources, but yesterday’s was worrying. It seemed like the data stream I was seeing was from different geographic location or time.
I hope this helps.
You seem to be confusing reported temperature measured by weather stations and temperature forecast by weather models. The Temperature layer shows the forecasted temperature unless you select Reported temperature.
Thanks for the clarification. I’ll make the change.
