Display temp reads 93°, online Wunderground reports 102° , why such a difference? The Wunderground reading is much higher than other local stations near me.

Are you sure you're looking at the correct station ID?

I can't think of any way wunderground could be reporting 10 degrees higher for a particular station.

The only other possibility is that maybe a calibration was applied to your display reading, but your display picture is too blurry to see if the calibration icon is lit.

Hello Mary,
I was able to locate your My AcuRite account and Weather Underground account. The temperature readings are matching today. Do you continue to read a different temperature on your display?
