@Gkikas-LGPZ yes, exactly. Where does the 14 Celcius comes from in the picker ? The METAR temperature of 23 Celcius at Santa Ynez Airport (KIZA) is the official FAA (Federal Aviation Administration) temperature reported at the airport. There is an AWOS-3 automated weather reporting station (unmanned) at KIZA. The AWOS-3 reports weather typically once every 20 minutes.

temperature discrepancy between METAR and Elev/PA/DA picker. Bug ?
There seems to be a discrepancy between the temperature shown in a METAR for an airport and the temperature shown in the Elev/PA/DA picker for the same airport. If the discrepancy is confirmed by the Windy team, it would be beneficial to fix this issue in order to show the correct DA (Density Altitude) in the Elev/PA/DA picker. The DA is a very important piece of information for aviators when they calculate aircraft performances. An incorrect DA can lead to incorrect take-off and landing runways calculations, which could lead to potential accidents. I understand that the Windy information should not be taken for real navigational purposes but still, I think displaying the correct DA is important. Thank you. See attached screenshot.
