    Just below freezing on Vancouver island; it's been chilly all week.

    Low 40s during the day here, but it's been getting into the mid 20s at night. We consider this incredibly cold because we live in a normal, non-hideous climate where god doesn't keep trying to throw ice-based plagues at us.

    We were promised a chance of snow over the weekend, but we didn't get any because the meteorologists are big stupid liar-faces. (It hardly ever snows in Sacramento. It's happened once in the 19 years I've lived here.)

    It's slightly below freezing here, but it feels much warmer than that for some reason.

    When it's well below freezing, the air doesn't feel as cold simply because its drier. Around the freezing point, the water vapour in the air that conducts heat hasn't turned into ice/snow/rime/hoar yet, so it contributes to the air feeling colder at 0 centigrade vs. -5 centigrade or so. Dry, colder air doesn't sap your heat quite as readily.

    Current conditions are 15F with a 12mph wind gusting to 25. Going to be even colder tomorrow and colder still on Wednesday before the heat wave rolls in this weekend and gets us to near 30.

    I live up in Westminster (20-30 mins northwest of Baltimore) and we got closer to 8, 8.5 inches yesterday. My puppy loved it and went nuts. And they've upped it to 4-6 for tomorrow for most of Maryland.

    It definitely feels like it's around 110, but it pretty much never actually cracks 100 near the water, it's just in the upper 90s pretty much all the time. The humidity totally makes it feel like satan's asshole.

    Where I live here in Sweden it's around -5 degrees celsius which is apparently around 23 fahrenheit (why would anyone use fahrenheit) but towards the north of Sweden the temperatures are hitting -37 degrees celsius or -34 fahrenheit

    Because it's a cycle. Everyone in the US is raised with it, thus it's what they're comfortable with, and thus it's all we use, meaning the next generation grows up with it...


    Everyone with half an education is aware how silly it is, but if you started blurting out "it's -5 degrees outside" over here, 9/10 you'd be met with a blank stare while the other person tried to figure out if you had a broken thermometer, were bullshitting them, or finally coming to the conclusion "Oh, right, Celsius". Same reason we still use feet and miles and pounds over here. Sure, they're kinda silly, but they're also deeply ingrained into the culture at this point.

    And I'd argue it's not a big deal. It's only a factor with international/scientific interactions, and Americans participating in either are more than happy to abandon our F for C.

    Fahrenheit is not a dumb scale.

    Its temperature ranges match up well with what people are likely to experience, and there's no inherent reason to like it more or less than Celsius - it has the same benefits and flaws, the only reason it's less useful in science is because it's not as easily converted to Kelvin, the One True Scale.

    It just kinda gets thrown in with the rest of the metric stuff, which actually is superior because of ease of conversion and relation between units. But as much as I hate the US clinging to imperial, Fahrenheit isn't inherently inferior (unlike, say, pounds/feet/inches).

    They're both arbitrary, however having water freeze at 32, boil at 212 and turning ovens to 400 is just silly. Fahrenheit is defined by three points - the natural temperature of a specific brine mixture, the natural temperature of an ice water mixture... and blood temperature. At least celcius is consistent

    You just use 2/5 degree increments in talking about the weather instead of 5/10

    Yeah, this weekend we were hitting -40 with the windchill. It is oddly one of my favorite temperatures to hit, because it is the same in Celsius or Fahrenheit.

    I also like Celsius as a measurement much more, due to being on a scale of 0 (freezing) to 100 (boiling) and -40 (alcohol freezes). So much easier.
