There appears to be a problem with the temperature sensor at Seattle-Tacoma Airport: it seems to be running several degrees too warm.
This is not the first time this has happened. And excessively warm temperatures at airport stations seems to be a growth industry around here. In a previous blog I talked about the problem at Yakima–which has been fixed. Ellensburg is running too warm as well.
But this blog will be about Seattle-Tacoma Airport, whose official NWS/FAA temperature sensor is located between two of the runways.
Why should you care about this?
