Air temperature is a measure of how hot or cold the air is. It is the most commonly measured weather parameter. More specifically, temperature describes the kinetic energy, or energy of motion, of the gases that make up air. As gas molecules move more quickly, air temperature increases.
Air temperature affects the growth and reproduction of plants and animals, with warmer temperatures promoting biological growth. Air temperature also affects nearly all other weather parameters. For instance, air temperature affects:
Temperature is usually expressed in degrees Fahrenheit or Celsius. 0 degrees Celcius is equal to 32 degrees Fahrenheit. Room temperature is typically considered to be 20-25 degrees Celcius (68-77 degrees Fahrenheit).
A more scientific way to describe temperature is in the standard international unit Kelvin. 0 degrees Kelvin is called absolute zero. It is the coldest temperature possible, and is the point at which all molecular motion stops. It is approximately equal to -273 degrees Celcius and -460 degrees Fahrenheit.
Temperature can be measured in numerous ways, including thermistors, thermocouples, and mercury thermometers. The SWMP uses thermistors, which are metallic devices that undergo predictable changes in resistance in response to changes in temperature. This resistance is measured and converted to a temperature reading in Celcius, Fahrenheit, or Kelvin.

Since when is room temperature consider 77 degrees? I am in my 60’s and I was always taught that room temperature was in the 68-72 degree range! 77 degrees inside is sweltering!

You are correct, the 77 degrees represents the high-end of the average. The information has been updated to reflect a more accurate range.

Did you know that air temperature affects nearly all other weather parameters, including precipitation patterns and types? It’s amazing how interconnected our environment is.
