Your AP style forecast
Some quick AP style tips on temperatures:
Temperatures get higher or lower, not warmer or cooler. So, Temperatures are expected to rise in the area Friday, not Temperatures are expected to warm up in the area Friday.
Don’t use an apostrophe when referring to a range of temperatures: Highs are expected to be in the 90s, not 90’s.
All temperature figures except zero should be written as numerals: Temperatures fell 5 degrees, not five degrees.
When it’s clear the temperature you’re writing about is on the Fahrenheit scale, such as outdoor temperatures in the U.S., there’s no need to say degrees Fahrenheit or 86 F.
Finally, don’t blame the weatherman if it rains for your July Fourth barbecue, blame the weather forecaster.
