You act like DIA is hundreds of miles away. The reality is that DIA is 14 miles from the center of Denver (I-25 and I -70).

And then the posts were people deny the official weather readings and post their Wal-Mart wall thermometer readings they get at their home. As the thermometer sits positioned next to the wall of the home, being warmed by the heat of the home and the sewer man-hole cover emitting steam.

You should call NOAA and advise them that their scientific data is wrong and that your Wal-Mart thermometer read -8F. I am sure they will hear you out.

It's hilarious reading this stuff.

Moderator cut: rude

If you actully lived here and watched the local news, you, like the rest of us, would know that the low in the city and the low at DIA were very different.

Moderator cut: name calling is not allowed

More nonsense!

DIA is only 14 miles away from the center of Denver (I-25 and & I-70). You make it sound like it is hundreds of miles away. 14 miles

Apparently you have no understanding of things like microclimates, changes in elevation and how they affect weather, how the mountains affect wind down here, etc. How far is Lakewood from Evergreen? Do you believe the weather in both cities is always the same

Not to mention city infrastucture. Asphalt, of which Denver has a great deal, captures and radiates heat. Just like you mentioned that our Walmart thermometers might be affected by the heat from our houses, city infrastructure makes a difference in ambient temperature readings. Weather Underground is a great place to study Denver microclimates.
