I guess you mean 23 Celsius? Or 23 Fahrenheit?

23 Celsius is not cold at all. In fact, we would call it a nice summer day if it is 23 degrees here in the Netherlands. However, 23 Fahrenheit = -5 Celsius (which is the temperature right now here in the Netherlands) is freezing cold.

Only dumb Americans (tm) use Fahrenheit, the rest of the world changed to a sensible measurement system ages ago. Its 25 degrees F here in Washington DC today. A bit colder than usual for this area.

I'm hoping its Fahrenheit, because 23 degrees Celsius is about 73ish F, which is amazing.

For perspecitve, it is -2 F here, which is something like -20is C. So it is mighty chilly here.

Celsius.

As I write this, it is 18 Celsius and predicted to lower.

In India, the lowest I have experienced, enjoyed really, was 3 Celsius on a New Year's Eve many years back. That night we were riding our motorbikes, all over the place. Good times.

Back when I was racing motorcycles, the year end season conclusion was New Years weekend in Savanna Georgia (US), with is about 600 miles south of Washington DC. It was winter in DC when we loaded the truck and drove South. We started with flannel shirts and coats. When we got to Savanna, we got out of the truck and started taking off clothes. It was so warm, we loved it. Next to us, arriving at the same time, were some racers from Miami, FL, which is 500 miles farther South from Savanna. They got out of their truck and complained about how terribly cold it was.

Sometimes is all relative.

In NYC, it's 23 F, which translated for the rest of the world, it -5 C here. And interesting enough, it's not that cold. I guess everything is relative, when you are used to colder...

Very true. I'm the guy that is wearing shorts in the 50s F range, with just a light jacket. I don't get bothered by the cold until it gets around the teens F. I do dislike the heat though....anything much about 80 F and I am very uncomfortable.

Are you guys referring actual temperature or feels like temperature? I generally refer weather.com for this kind of information. It's 23 F right now and feels like 10 F.

One of the most amazing things I saw on my first trip to DisneyWorld (Sept of '01) was people from different places and how they were dressed. I saw one person wearing a heavy winter coat standing next to someone else wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

Years back, I worked in downtown Washington DC with a guy who was raised in Minnesota. He remarked that they sold exactly the same winter coats in stores in both Washington and Minnesota. Of course the weather is completely different. I bet most of the Ranchers even in India saw the footage of the Minnesota football stadium's roof collapsing under the blizzard of snow last week. Up there, they get snow storms each week that exceed what we get in a complete season. Our normal temps in winter are 15 F to 40 F, or -10 C to 5 C. Theirs is more like -15 F to 15 F (-25 C to 10 C)

He didn't wear a coat in the winter unless he was walking a couple of blocks. Said it wasn't worth the trouble.

What's more sensible about Celsius? They're both linear scales, based on arbitrary events :P

The Celsius scale is based on water: 0 degrees is the freezing point, 100 degrees is the boiling point of water at one atmosphere of pressure (at least, that was the original definition). That's at least simple and somewhat logical.

The Fahrenheit scale had a more obscure definition: 0 degrees was the freezing point of brine (a mixture of ice, water and ammonium chloride) and 100 degrees was human body temperature, which isn't a very precise temperature point, as not everybody has the exact same body temperature. Being partly based on a measurement of the human body, it's just as archaic as other old measurements such as the foot or the ell.

And totally useless. going from 2 degrees to 4 degrees does not mean it has twice the heat.

Kelvin, FTW!!!

Yes, but that's not so practical. Imagine having to deal with "It's 296 degrees today. Tomorrow it will be 293 degrees". Those numbers are more awkward to work with for the average human than 23 and 20.

Real geeks can do the subtract 273 function without thinking.

In the UK (or maybe just Scotland) people seem to have the tendency of quoting hot temperatures in Fahrenheit and cold ones in Celsius. Now that's needlessly complex!

Only until they get more practice with them.

If we use your logic, then the U.S. is correct in sticking with F, since the world was more familiar with those numbers first. 20 and 23 were more awkward to most people when C was first introduced

That's how I thought of it for quite a few years. Here in Canada where I live, we converted to Celsius back in the 1970's. So I got used to 0 being freezing and 20 being a nice warm day, but in Vancouver it almost never gets above 30. That meant that my Celsius vocabulary ranged from about -15 to 30. For temperatures above that I had to go to the US, where they spoke Fahrenheit. So I got used to 90 being hot and 100 being beastly hot, and my Fahrenheit vocabulary ranged from about 80 upwards.

Perhaps that's how the British got that way too, although they don't have any Fahrenheit neighbours to reinforce the tendency.

And when I was in Britain a couple of years ago I noticed that distances were still measured in miles, not kilometres. What's up with that?

Clearly that's because 30 does not sound like a big number. Then again, does it ever get hot and sunny in the UK? I thought it was cold, damp, and gray all of the time. My sister lives in Tuscon AZ, and she considers 100 to be a cool spell.
