Edmonton Alberta Temperatures
This is from a 3-year fan of Windy. I am wondering WHY the reported "Edmonton" temperature is so incorrect? (And this is typical) For example, Dec 29, 2022 9:30 MST, there are at least 21 Davis weather stations within a 17 km radius of the Edmonton pinpoint showing an instant temperature of -9 to -11 and WIndy is showing -17 (interpolated). Surely to goodness Windy can be more accurate than that! (BTW, the Davis stations are NOT drug-store $35.00 jobs.)
Even The Weather Network is reporting -10 dgrees C!!

Hi @lfrogg, which model do you use in Windy? I compared all provided models and there is a large difference (6 degrees ) but we display them from their data so it is difficult for us to adjust them.

Windy accuracy depends on the weather models accuracy. And as @Ondřej-Šutera said Windy cannot make adjustments. The temperature displayed here is expected but not reported temperature as you say.
Indeed if you look at reported temperature at airport weather station, there was a discrepancy last Thursday when comparing it with the local predicted temperature. Difficult to explain why, as all models available in your area show more or less the same deviation, except Meteoblue
During following days the forecast temperature (the dotted curve) is not so far from the reported one.
