Asking for weather conditions for Springfield Mass

I get back these strange values for dewpoint:
"dewpoint_string":"-34 F (-37 C)",

Which appears odd to me for Massachusetts in June. If I lookup weather on, I see a dewpoint of 64F, which looks much better. Any clues why the API is returning odd values for this one city? Queries to other cities seem to work well.

the website uses different logic to pick what weather station to display. With the API you are getting the nearest weather station, it may have some data fields missing
