    -15˚C = fifteen degrees below zero Centigrade/Celsius

    How do you read -15˚C ?
    fifteen degrees below zero Centigrade or Celsius?

    Some people still use the word 'Centigrade'. The preferred word is 'Celsius'.

    In Canada you often hear "minus fifteen."

    "Minus fifteen Centigrade" for me.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
