Outdoor sensor location on my Yaris Hatchback?

I am purchasing the following for my Yaris Hatchback.
ACU-RITE WIRELESS INDOOR / OUTDOOR DIGITAL THERMOMETER.
My problem is where to locate on the car the sensor for the outdoor reading? Any suggestions would be appreciated......thanks

Under the cowl? On top of one of the head lamps? Jeep mounts theirs by the grille

I had one on my CRX and just had it double sided taped to the outside of the door gasket right in the door jam behind the front fender. Seemed to work fine there and was VERY easy to run the wire to.

The OEM temp sensor on my Volvo is located in the the lower grill below the bumper. Its a good. It gets some heat soak from the engine after driving the car but it get accurate again after about 2 minutes of driving.

I think I've seen them in the air channel that cools the front brakes. Still ambient with quick response with little or no affect from the engine.
