Celsius and Fahrenheit

Roughly speaking

°C   0    4    10  13  15  18  21  24  26  30  32     40
°F  32   40    50  55  60  65  70  75  80  85  90    104
°C 0 4 10 13 15 18 21 24 26 30 32 40
°F 32 40 50 55 60 65 70 75 80 85 90 104
    100 °C    = 212 °F   (boiling point of water)
     37 °C    =  98.6 °F (human body temperature)
      0 °C    =  32 °F   (freezing point of water)
    -17.8 °C  =   0 °F
    -40 °C    = -40 °F

Humidity. 80+ °F (26+ °C) is more uncomfortable in humid air than in dry air because dry air allows more sweat to evaporate from your skin and this cools you but humid air inhibits this evaporation and leaves you more susceptible to overheating.

Drink lots of water in hot weather to replenish the water your body sweats as it attempts to cool itself.

A temperature drop will catch you by surprise one day without a jacket. Pack sufficient clothes to bundle up.

Centimeters and inches
