Thermometer apps for measuring air temperature
These days there are many smartphone applications that allow you to see the current weather conditions as well as the weather forecast for a few days ahead. Some even notify you of imminent precipitation.
As you know, the air temperature in cities is always higher than in the rural area. All is due to the heat island effect.
