Many people look at the weather before they go outside. They want to know what the air temperature is. By knowing the temperature, people can decide how to dress for the day. They might wear heavy coats on cold days. They might wear shirts and shorts on warm days.

People can use thermometers to check their body temperature. They check by sticking the thermometer under their tongue. A high body temperature can be a sign of sickness. A normal body temperature is between 97 and 99 degrees Fahrenheit (36.1°C and 37.2°C).
