I think it might be time for a new thermometer, or place it in a shadier location, sometimes mine reads a little higher than the news reports, but not 10 degrees different. Weather.com says it's 97 in Apple Valley, CA

My house is always warmer than the town for some reason. Can't get much shadier than my back porch. Ya its a mercury thermometer. Here is my other one about 15 ft from that one.

For my area this seems to be the normal - for the forecast to be way off. Sometimes they will predict rain for several days, only to have it finally drizzle a little one morning.

Also in my city you can drive 4 or 5 miles across town and have the temperature change by 4-6 degrees.

Same where I live. It seems that they always over-forecast the rain and under-forecast the snow.
