I could not for the life of me figure out why Charleston, SC wasn't one of the hottest capital cities. Major Facepalm.

Would it be possible to add the temperatures in Celsius, also? Obviously, this is an US quiz, and that's totally fine, and the temperatures aren't really needed to answer it, but it would still be intersting for people who aren't used to dealing with Fahrenheit. Thanks!
