Quick Temperature Conversion Chart

I'll be honest: thinking in degrees centigrade doesn't come automatically to me. I'm a Fahrenheit man. So a while back, I made life a little easier for myself by putting together a chart of quick, at-a-glance temperature conversions.

It dawns on me that I'm probably not the only person on this forum who struggles with getting his or her arms around centigrade in a meaningful way. So I thought I'd share my chart with you. It's not intended to account for every degree on the thermometer; it just gives you a good feel for the range of temperatures. I keep it as a desktop icon along with my other storm chasing resources. Here it is.

Thanks Bob. I am also one of those that deals with Fahrenheit and MPH the best. I am not too much into the metric system. So, thanks for the chart.
Thanks for the chart, Bob. I was trying to find something like this a while back. I found a small chart but your's contains more detail.

There is also this site, if you need to convert temperature. For negative temps, just put a minus in front of the number.

I have the same trouble with centimeters... I work in inches and feet. Could never picture centimeters in my head. Always have, despite being a Canuck.
The Tulsa NWS office maintains a really good meteorological calculator for: Temperature Conversion, Windchill Calculation, Relative Humidity Calculation, Heat Index Calculation, Wind Speed Conversion, and Station Pressure Calculation
