I’ve added an estimated Freezing Level (4th column, under Dewpoint). I’m undecided whether I’ll keep it… due to our very common “temperature inversions” that we have in the Valley. But generally, if people remember that if we have fog in the morning, then the estimate will be off.. then it should be OK. 🙂

    1. Hi Murray,

      That post is a little outdated now.. You should be able to see the estimated freezing level in the main topmost box, bottom-right corner. When it is cool and humid like this it revers to an “inversion/Fog” indicator because it can’t accurately predict the freezing level under these conditions anyway.

      Once it warms up down here it should shift to a proper estimate of the freezing level.
