I remember that from the olden days Fahrenheit=((Celsius*9)/5)+32 If you're looking for something more specific to PYWWS you might try asking on the mailing list or Google Group that are linked from http://code.google.com/p/pywws/ This isn't a bad place to ask but it's rather specialist software, so forums dedicated to discussion of it are a better bet to getting an answer.

Posted on http://groups.google.com/group/pywws and the reply came within 24 hrs. The modifications are being made right now. Those guys are really on top of this project!

It's based on the fact that -40F = -40C. So: F = ( (C + 40) x 9/5 ) - 40 C = ( (F + 40) x 5/9 ) - 40 In words: Add 40, multiply, subtract 40. Since the "40" goes in 2ce, you only have to get 5:9 ratio in correctly. Last edited by archtoad6; 01-23-2011 at 04:33 PM.
