How can I check the elevation being used for a spot forecast, the one that displays below the map? The temperatures and snowfall forecasts in the meteograms absolutely do not correspond with the precip type and temp data displayed on the map, for the corresponding point on the map. Is this due to a wide grid being used? If so, it makes the forecasts very misleading for mountainous areas.

What elevation for spot forecasts?
Freezing altitude over mountains
Please confirm if freezing level is stated as:
A) elevation above the ground at that spot
B) elevation above sea level.
Look at Mt Fuji in Japan, for example. It is directly next to the ocean, yet Freezing Altitude changes considerably depending on if you click on the summit, or the nearby ocean. Yet it should be the same for very similar Lat/Long location.
