When values are rounded, are they rounded up, down, or to the nearest integer?

In the "feels like" item, the value is rounded to an integer, but I'm not certain if this value is rounded up, down or to whichever integer is closer.

Also, if the value is rounded to the nearest one, is a value exactly halfway between (ie *.5) rounded up or down?

Finally, is whatever rounding method used for the "feels like" item used universally?

It should be rounded to the nearest, based on halfway. The "feels like" comes from either Heat Index, Windchill or the actual Temperature. Heat Index and Windchill are both calculated values, whereas the Temperature is an observed value, and could end up being 62.3
