Default Temperture sensor reading too warm ?

I've tried out a few apps for reading the onboard sensors. Currently using the WeatherSignal one, which is quite good and free.

I've notice with all the apps I've tried, that the temperature appears to be
4-6 degrees above what it really is. I read that the temperature sensor is
at the bottom of the phone, near the button, is that correct ? Wonder if
anyone else has experienced inaccurate temp readings ? Maybe the
case is acting as an insulator and the phones internals are causing the
rise ? Maybe developers should add a offset to compensate for this. Thoughts ?
