I like to look at temperatures and weather conditions where I live, play, and visit and I appreciate all the people and organizations who maintain weather stations around the world. It's interesting to see how places just a few miles apart can vary in weather data because of their particular location. That is really apparent whenever Santa Ana or Sundowner winds are in the picture. I noticed this yesterday when it was a very mild 69 degrees at work in South Oxnard and the weather.com magnet told me it was 78 degrees in Ventura. This morning at 6:10, the Weather Underground station in the Ventura Keys shows a temperature of 45.9 degrees with 66% humidity and no breeze, while the station just east of our house between the 101 and the 126 shows 57.3 degrees with 40% humidity and a north-northeast wind that just increased from one to two miles per hour as the sun will be rising soon.
