If you want to associate a variable name with a piece of data I think your best bet is to use a table instead.
If you just want to display formatted text you can use sprintf().

Assuming that matrix is called myMatrix
A = table(myMatrix, 'VariableNames', {'Temp', 'Irr'});
will create a table variable of the matrix and name the variables Temp and Irr.

The correct syntax to convert a matrix into a table is:
A = array2table(myMatrix, 'VariableNames', {'Temp', 'Irr'});
The table constructor expects one input per column, not a matrix of columns. The above will result in an error.

Oops, that's correct. Good catch. I was recalling that he had said column vectors.
