MIKE MOSS SAYS:      Colleen,     The two observations are individually labeled on our "Current Conditions" page. On our main weather page, you will see the most recent observation from the RDU airport just above the flash (animated) version of the 5-Day forecast. The temperature shown in the upper right hand corner of all pages on the site is from a sensor on our roof. The rooftop sensor updates almost continuously, whereas the RDU temperature is normally updated at the top of each hour.
