    Quick question. My observation is that temp forecasts from yr.no typically appear on the cold side especially compared to BOM forecasts. Any thoughts?

    Just looking to improve my "local calibration" of weather model output.

    It is raw EC output.

    Sometimes it's due to the slightly different locations - eg comparing Mount Perisher on yr.no (a little over 2000masl) with Perisher Valley on BOM (a little over 1700masl)

    I find yr.no to be better used for rainfall forecasts than temps
