This. My VDO computer regularly displays temps 10-20 higher than the forecast or recorded temps. The only exceptions seem to be foggy days and night time.
I'll also point out that weather is read from a specific location. Riding in rural areas and canyons, mountain tops, open desert, etc. will find you in places that aren't really covered by a general are forecast.
