Our student meteorologists, Caitlyn and Sergei, gathered temperatures that were recorded for each month in our area. They compared the data and calculated an average temperature. Here are some examples of the data we collected.
These are the results: The average temperature for
Fall was 54° Fahrenheit.
Winter was 29° Fahrenheit.
Spring was 49° Fahrenheit.
Summer was 73° Fahrenheit.
Since most of the world uses the metric system, we also thought it would be a good idea to convert these numbers from Fahrenheit to Celsius. We used the following formula to convert the temperatures.
°F to °C Deduct 32, then multiply by 5, then divide by 9
°C to °F Multiply by 9, then divide by 5, then add 32
Fall was 12° Celsius.
Winter was -2° Celsius.
Spring was 10° Celsius.
Summer was 23° Celsius
