When we are going to say the weather temperature is below 0 degrees we use X degrees below zero or minus X degrees, but what about the contrary case?
For instance we would probably say something like:
- It's 3 degrees below zero centigrade today.
- It's minus 3 degrees today.
I know we would use the structure: X degrees above zero, but the question is that whether we can use the similar case as is in "minus" case and use the construction like:
- The tempreraure is plus i.e. 30 degrees C
When I search on the internet I don't encounter any sort of similar structure and it appears to me as if in "above zero" case, we can omit the adjective plus by default, because anybody knows that not mentioning below or above would mean it is plus as a default!
Do you confirm my take over this matter?
