Temperature why do i care All

Why do I care? Temperature of the surrounding air plays an important part in our everyday lives.  It helps us determine what to wear and what outdoor activities to do.  Temperature controls planting dates and the growth of plants as well as insect pests and crop diseases.  As an integral part of weather, temperature also determines the type of precipitation (rain/snow/sleet) that might occur if you are in a location that is experiencing near freezing conditions.
