Outside Air Temp

Anyone have an inexpensive solution to know the outside ambient air temp?

My 1993 with its cassette deck doesn't have that fancy technology.

I'm looking for something self contained and analog.

I've seen some small stick on thermometers on side mirrors of cars. Maybe something like that.

Or you could just use a weather rock.

Almost forgot about Weather Rocks.

Highly scientific - Look at it.

If the rock is wet, it is raining.
If it feels cold, it's cold out.
If there's snow on it, it is snowing.
If you can't see it, it's dark out.
If it's gone, the wind blew it away, take cover!

They've digitalized weather rocks now. They're a lot smaller than the original oem. Same with the weather sticks too, but they don't last as long as the rock..

How about a weather donkey?
If it's tail is wet, it's raining
if it is waving it's windy
if it's stiff it's cold
if it white it's snowing

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Seriously, If the 1800 didn't have the temp already on it I wouldn't miss it. Since it's there though I do use it, mostly to see how close I can guess what the temperature is.
