Watch sensors icon displays 26C all the time regardless of load

The top bar displays “26”[celsius] next to a red thermometer all the time. Of course the two core temps on the cpu fluctuate widely during use, and rarely do they ever dip below 30. How do I fix the top bar icon to display an average of two core temps reported by “/usr/bin/sensors”? Thanks

You can create modules that use hwmon to display temperatures for each core:

If you want the average temperature from both cores, you may need to make a custom script for that.
