Taipei, (Taiwan News)—Taiwan might be a small country, but people residing in the northern, central and
southern parts of the country’s “apparent temperatures” are similar to those from three different climate regions, say netizens.
“Apparent temperatures” represents how temperatures are perceived by people, during cold spells people might feel the weather is more frigid than the actual temperature shown on the thermometer.
Taiwanese illustrators Chico & Chica’s comic strip depicts the cold tolerance level of people from different regions of the island with northerners being the best at coping with the cold, those from central Taiwan in second, while southerners are least tolerant.
The mark for northerners to start feeling chilly is 10 degrees Celsius, 15 degrees Celsius for mid-Taiwan citizens, and 20 degrees Celsius for southerners. [FULL STORY]
