You might try tailoring the National Weather Service's model to interpolate to 
your exact location.  Modify the link below to contain your latitude (textField1)
and longitude (textField2).  Note that longitude is negative in the U.S.  You
can get lat and long via google maps or a gps.

Don't know how accurate it will be, but where I am it seems to take care of
the change due to mountains and elevation pretty well.
