On holiday, we always listen to the weather while getting ready in the mornings.
However, the temperature is always given as fahrenheit and I am used to celcius. Anyone got a conversion chart that would help me work out what to wear at a glance?

A rough guide is to subtract 30 from the fahrenheit number and then half it.
E.g: 80f - 30 = 50, half that = 25c

I always substract 32 and then divide it by 2... but 30 is definetly easier and the result is very similar...

That seems like a lot of math. God help me if I ever go out of the country :tongue:

yeap! 30 is easier!!

the good thing is most phones have a calculator so its easier.... and.... you will probably want a calculator anyway to see how much things are costing... except in the UK, everything is so expensive I would have ended up hunting worms... hahahahaha

Yup, just remember the starting pionts...0 degrees C and 32 degrees F..every time the metric one C goes up 10 (easy to remember) the English SAE goes up 18..0 = 32, 10 = 50, 20 = 68, 30 = 86, 40 = 104...any higher get a fire extinguisher.:tongue:
