If the temperature this morning is 0 degrees and the Weather Channel says, "it will be twice as cold tomorrow", what will the temperature be?

It just shows how stupid the weathergirls are on tv - their general level of intelligence is very low - they are usually only there because the editor thinks they are cute!

The only way is to convert it from celcius to fahrenheit or vice versa.If it is measured as C then 32/2 = 16F. If in F then it will be -16C.

There really was a radio presenter who read out the temperature on morning in New York. I think he wasn't quite awake yet because he said "The temperature this morning in New York is zero degrees ... good heavens! No temperature at all!" You are right, of course. "Twice as cold" really has no meaning whatsoever. If it's zero degrees Fahrenheit, then it's nearly -18 degrees Celsius. Would twice as cold be -36 Celsius (or -32 Fahrenheit)? On the other hand, if 60 degrees were a 'normal' temperature, then 0 degrees is 60 degrees colder, so would it be -60 tomorrow?

Ha!ha!ha that's a funny one, i think the Weather Channel got the statement all wrong there, i mean what will that be? -0 squared(-02)? That was very funny one, i hope they rectify that so that they don't make same mistake again, because it might sound like they are misleading people

the term "cold" cannot be quantified here.. if u provide me a yesterday's temperature i would atleast try to get the relative temperature..
