These questions come up regularly. It is much much much easier to average
it in software after the fact, then you can apply the filtering you want or
try different ones.

Look at this temperature graph (it takes a while to load, there is a lot of
data) (yes, it may even take longer than that):


The number in the bottom left corner of the graph is the moving average,
change it to smaller or bigger to see how much filtering you want.
