Quelle est la température actuelle ?

What is the current temperature?

Today we are going to discuss the current temperature and what it can mean for our environment . Temperature is an important indicator of the state of our climate, and it is important to understand how it is measured and how it can vary depending on different factors.

Check the current outdoor temperature in your area and around the world

How is the weather outside today? Is it hot and sunny, cloudy and humid, cold and rainy , or freezing and snowy ?

Technically, the official temperature is measured in the shade, not in direct sunlight, so that the thermometer does not heat up and give an incorrect reading. The following weather map gives you accurate, real-time air temperatures - in Fahrenheit and Celsius - as well as a visual representation of nearby regional, national and continental differences.

Keep in mind that the accuracy of daily forecasts drops significantly after ten days, and even in the 5-10 day range, noticeable errors and miscalculations can occur.

Actual temperature and felt temperature

There is a difference between the actual outside temperature and what we call the “ felt ” temperature.

Explanation of the difference

The explanation for this subtle but relevant variation between these two concepts lies in the variables taken into account to define the “felt” temperature.

Factors taken into account for the “felt” temperature

The “feels like” temperature takes into account three key factors: actual air temperature, wind strength about five feet above the ground, and relative humidity.

Need for differentiation

But why is it necessary to differentiate between the two measurement methods? This is because people often comment that it is much warmer or much colder than the temperature or observation tells them.

Usefulness of “felt” temperature

“Feels” temperature is a practical way to help people better understand how they will feel when they go outside, whatever time of day it is.

Official temperature measurement method

The official temperature is normally recorded from a thermometer installed at weather stations, radars and weather observatories.

Calculation of “felt” temperature

In contrast, “felt” temperature is calculated to understand how an average person would feel, dressed for the current season, outside.

The wind chill effect

Wind and relative humidity influence temperature perception

In reality, wind and relative humidity can significantly change how a person perceives the air temperature outside. For example, when the wind is particularly strong, we feel colder. It's called wind chill, and there's even a chart that talks about it.

For example, if you're getting ready to go out, you check the temperature forecast, which says 22°C, and decide to leave your sweater at home, says Jenny Sturrock, senior meteorologist at Australia's Bureau of Meteorology.

Then, when you go outside, it feels much colder than 22°C. The reason is that we all have a thin layer of warm air around our bodies, and the wind comes in and removes this layer, leaving our skin exposed, making us feel colder.

Wind chill and evaporative cooling

When it's hot and humid, this can make temperatures even more stifling, especially in tropical regions where the temperature can reach 29°C but feel like 38°C.

Normally, when we are hot, we sweat and this sweat evaporates from our skin, cooling us. But at the moment when the air is humid, evaporation is limited and the heat and humidity stay close to our body, making us feel more intense heat than what is indicated on the thermometer.

The temperature felt is therefore important to avoid thermal stress on our body and to better understand the effects that heat can have on us when we are outside.
