I've seen them disagree by almost 10 degrees; when they were a few blocks from each other. i remember the hotter one kept reading temperatures above 90 degrees on summer evenings, which would be rather unusual for the location.

I just trust my 2011 Honda Accord's thermometer. She's pretty accurate.

The only thing on that structure that doesn't need replacing is the 'elite' sign.
