What is the best place to put an outdoor thermometer?
For the most accurate reading, use a liquid-in-glass or a digital thermometer. Place it so that it is not in direct sunlight at any time. The shade of a tree and a north-facing porch are two good places. Place the thermometer four to six feet above the ground in an area where there is sufficient airflow. Finally, keep it protected from rain, snow, and ice.
