Location of air temperature sensor?

Does anyone know where the air temperature sensor is located? The one that reports outside air temperature in the instrument cluster.

Thanks everyone.

No. Mine is not malfunctioning. I was just noticing that it took a few minutes for mine to adjust to the correct outdoor temperature after driving out of my garage this morning. It got me to wondering where the sensor was located.

The sensor will take some time to adjust to the correct outside temperature especally in you come out a cooler garage into the warm air or if you park for a while in the hot sun and as you drive the temperature will lower. So far the temperature sensor seems pretty accurate. My other car has a +/- 4 degree adjustment if needed. Never needed to adjust that one either. Just expect that the temperature will level out about 3 miles or so into your trip.

Here is what it will look like in the center post looking into the front grille. This is an old picture but it looks similar to this one for the 2012 Camry.

Does anyone know where i can find the wires from the sensor inside the car? Does they go to the fuse box on the driver's side? I ask because I bought an auto dimming mirror with home link, compass, and temp control. I know the car has one but I couldn't pass up this mirror for the price. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
