To add a pin, click on the marker in the toolbar:

Then click the spot on the map where you'd like to add your pin. After you click on the map, this window appears:

Where it says "Point" and a number, you will type in the name of the place you're adding, In the text box below the name of the place, you will type in the temperature in BOTH Celsius and Fahrenheit:

To go to a second line in the text box, you can't just click the "Return" key. You must click "Control" and "Return" at the same time.
After you've finished adding the information, click "Save."
