Netizen's message: Why only Beijing broadcasts “degrees” when the weather forecast is broadcast, and only the “degrees” are reported in other places?

Reply: Thank you very much for your interest in the weather forecast program. China uses "degrees Celsius" as the temperature unit, which is simply called "degrees" in daily life. In order to avoid ambiguity and ensure accuracy, each city in the weather forecast should indeed be dubbed with "degrees Celsius", but due to the limited program duration, each city is generally only about 3 seconds. When the city name is announced, the weather must also be reported Phenomenon and temperature, the amount of information is large, so we uniformly use only the voice of “degrees Celsius” in the capital Beijing, and simply refer to “degrees” in other cities. This will not only save time, but also avoid high-frequency repetition of the same word , It is more helpful for the audience to receive meteorological information efficiently. Thank you again for your interest in the weather forecast program, and I hope you can support our program as always!
