My firefox overheats my cpu, sometimes above 90 degrees Celsius ( hence the name? )
To keep an eye on temperature, I put this command inside KAlarm ( a kind of cron) to be repeated every minute, for 5 seconds, color red ( default for osd_cat).
Its pretty, ultra small, displays a micro 2 lines text on every desktop and over everything and do not steal focus or interrupt any task. I get the information passively, in the low profile bottom of the screen.
Of course you can use it inside a terminal. Just do it:
watch -n 60 'acpi -t | osd_cat -p bottom'
There are 4 alternatives - vote for the best!
If you can do better, submit your command here.
