What is the current weather like at Earthshine? During the warmer months after the hours of 11:00am, subtract 10 degrees from the outdoor temperature to get an accurate outdoor temperature. This is due to the fact that the temperature sensor is on the west side of the building and receives direct sun from noon until sunset.
