We take float variable for temperature because temperature is not always a integer value,it is also a decimal values and for decimal values we use float variable so we use float variable for temperature representation

temperature of boiling water=100°c

But temperature of a human body = 37.5°c

Because temperature is measured in decimal values to find the exact temperature of a place we use decimal values also hence we will use float for measuring the temperature.

Because float data type can store decimal values and as temperature can be in decimal therefore it is advisable to use float.
