My station's been showing the same resolution for Feels Like as well! The day that that many digits in a temp reading is important will be an impressive day to say the least!  :lol:

When it comes to the temp of the house and adjusting the thermostat, I swear my wife can tell a 0.000000000000001 difference!  #-o

You may be on to something.  While on my way out to the CoCoRaHS gauge this morning I thought it seemed warmer than 14.6.  :-)
