2022-08-06: [Article Link] The PaperSmart reporter, Chen Shao-young.
On August 5, the highest temperature hit 40.2°C at Xu House in Shanghai. Many web users found that the weather software that Apple phones carry themselves shows that Shanghai's highest temperature today is as high as 50°C, such as 51°C in Pudu district and 47°C in Silent Zone.
In response, the official Weibo “Shanghai Weather” of the Shanghai Meteorological Service stated that because weather forecasts in the Apple self-belt system were provided by the United States company TWC (The Weather Company), they did not use the real observed temperature, but rather estimated the actual temperature by other means, for this part of the physical temperature based on geographical location. @Shanghai Weather Chart

The relevant staff of the Shanghai Meteorological Department further informed the journalist The PaperSmart (www.thepaper.cn) that the temperature data provided by the City Meteorological Service were the atmospheric background temperature measured by the Standard Meteorological Observatory on the basis of uniform technical standards and were the actual site data. According to the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), temperatures issued by the meteorological services are those measured by thermometers in a leaf box, which must be located on the lawn, 1.5 metres from the ground, with a wider perimeter, with no high buildings, trees, etc. that block the wind or shield the sunlight. “There are currently nearly 400 automatic weather stations in Shanghai, and some mobile phone software has its own weather APP that does not use actual observational data, but rather estimates using other data and tools. The Shanghai Meteorological Department's official APP, “Shanghai Weather”, shows that the highest temperatures are found at the Predagan Springs Road station, which is near 24 hours of high temperature, and at 42.4°C, and at the Predatorpool Future Island Park, 42.2°C, which is the second highest.

In response, the staff of the Meteorological Department told journalists that after all, there was a heat that was known only to the body. Temperatures vary from temperature measured at meteorological stations and are influenced by a variety of factors. In addition to temperature published by the meteorological services, there are factors such as humidity, wind speed, radiation, etc., which can vary from person to person due to differences in body and mood.
