Hi,
It may be better lately, last time I checked was a couple of years ago!
http://www.wunderground.com/cgi-bin/findweather/hdfForecast?query=los+altos+hills
Station #1 on the map comes up as being on the other side of the 280,
and it looks like it's up on top of the mountain.
I don't remember station 3 or 4 being there a few years ago, maybe it
was. Right now I'm approximately in the center of 1,2,3,4.
At the moment there's about a 5 to 6 degrees difference between 3 and 1.
It wasn't a scientific comparison :-), i remember looking at the
weather on the site one day and noticed the temp was about 10 degrees
different at that moment :)
