It gives a range of zones for zip codes that contain, well, a range of
zones.  Even in a very large area of a single zone, one might live in a
microclimate; the best way to know your zone would be an historical record
of low temps right where you are.  Which isn't to say some extreme cold snap
won't come along.  We had one in the eighties where the temperature was zero
one morning in an area where the all time record low was something around

I do find the Sunset zones more informative than the USDA ones, btw.

USDA 9, AHS heat zone 8,

It lists my area as zone 6-8 .....  accurate, maybe, but not very precise!
(I'd say I'm about a 7 - 7b)
