How it's entered into the database, and how it's displayed, are two
separate things.  Humans are messy.  Unless the API starts validating
entries, entries will vary in format, even if we officially say that "46 C"
is the official format.  But software can parse and normalize numbers.

That said: temperature=___ is a problematic tag regardless of the
formatting of the data.
