Going back in edit history, the earliest I found was
https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/213444942/history v1 from
https://www.openstreetmap.org/changeset/15525007 in 2013. Doubt you'll
get answers for that, especially considering the edit seemed wonky
anyway with overlapping highways. I agree it's probably some
"temporary tag".

Some of the other values _could_ be temperatures, but doubt it's
anything widely useful.
