Please add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. – Harish Kumar May 18 '12 at 2:17
To type units, I suggest using siunitx which also offers a tabular with S column. You have to use \degreeCelsius there. – Harish Kumar May 18 '12 at 2:19

The array environment is in math mode, so you need to use {}^\circ. In tabular you need to use ${}^\circ$.
