When Anders Celsius first created the Celsius system, the lower the temperature, the hotter it was. For example, 0 degrees Celsius was the original boiling point. However, the Celsius scale was inverted after his death. The Fahrenheit scale always used greater numbers for warmer temperatures, but had not been as widely adopted as the Celsius scale. If you have a temperature in Fahrenheit, you can convert it to Celsius.
