Anders, Swedish astronomer, 1701-1744. See: Celsius scale.

Cel·si·us scale

(sel'sē-ŭs skāl)
A temperature scale that is based on the triple point of water (defined to be 273.16°K) and assigned the value of 0.01°C; has replaced the centigrade scale because the triple point of water can be more accurately measured than the ice point; for most practical purposes, however, the two scales are equivalent.

If heat index is over 54 degrees Celsius, PAGASA said there is "extreme danger" as "heat stroke is imminent."
Pahalgam in south Kashmir and Gulmarg in north Kashmir recorded a minimum temperature of minus 7 degrees Celsius, followed by Qazigund minus 6.5 degrees Celsius and Kupwara minus 5.4 degrees Celsius.
Other areas in the country that have experienced high heat index include Cotabato City, Maguindanao (41 degrees Celsius); Cuyo, Palawan (41.4 degrees Celsius); and Sangley Point, Cavite (41.4 degrees Celsius).
It will range from 36.2 to 38.2 degrees Celsius in Metro Manila; 32.8 to 38.3 degrees Celsius in lowlands of Visayas; and 32.9 to 38.8 degrees Celsius in lowlands of Mindanao.
With heat indices reaching "dangerous" levels or ranging from 41 to 54 degrees Celsius, PAGASA said "heat cramps and heat exhaustion are likely, while heat stroke is probable with continued activity.
