I'm looking at a historical weather data report and the TMAX and TMIN are like this: 44 and -21, the following day 72 and 17. First I thought it was Fahrenheit, but the conversion didn't make any sense because it would be +6°C one day and +22°C the following day in January in NY, NY.
Then the note said - * Values denoted with “*” (i.e. temperature values) are in Celsius degrees to tenths on csv.
Does it mean 44 is actually 4.4 and 72 is 7.2? That would make much more sense.
More examples TMAX/TMIN:
44/-21, 72/17, 83/-10, 128/61, 106/-49, -49/-71
PS. I know there is a possible duplicate that MAY have an answer to my question, unfortunately it doesn't. Some comments (not the answer itself or the question) explain WHY it is the case in vague and guessing terms, but it doesn't give an answer to WHAT it is, which is my question. Nobody can say for sure if 44 is 4.4 and -21 is -2.1 and I can't rely on guesses.
