At what temperatures do you consider it to be Cold or Hot?
« on: July 17, 2011, 12:29:10 AM »
Just out of interest, I know when people are acclimatised to their local area they feel the cold and hot at different temperatures. Just wondering how everyone else feels about these temps.

Here's my example for how most locals around here would feel:
100F - Ridiculously Hot
95 F - Very Hot
90 F - Really Hot
80 F - Warm
70 F - Pleasant Temperature
65 F - Pleasant
60 F - Pleasant, a little cool if there is a breeze
55 F - Cool
50 F - Chilly
45 F - Cold
40 F - Cold
35 F - Very Cold
30 F - Freezing Cold
Mackay, Australia.

MY AREA IN JULY:
- Chilly mornings (anything between 30 F and 45 F mostly)
- Pleasant days (anything between 60 F and 70 F mostly)
- Dry, low humidity
- Very little rainfall (usually not much more than 2 inches)

   This pretty much sums it up for me.  But the older I get the more unpredictible will be how uncomfortable the temp is...especially cold.  Tolerate cold a bit more still.  Not as easy a question as first seems!

     100+  =    Way too hot
       95    =   Miserably hot
      90     =    Uncomforably hot
      80     =    warm
      70     =    Pleasantly nice!  (70-75 is perfection!!!)
      60     =    Stimulatingly nice
      50     =    coolish
      40     =    cold
      30     =    really cold
      25     =    Very cold!
      20     =    Penetratingly cold
      15     =    Freezing cold
   below 0=   Frigid

I can handle most anything between 45 and 75.  25 to 45, you just put a few more clothes on.  75 to 85 I can deal with for a while if there's a breeze and it isn't too humid.  Below 25 or above 85, I don't function too well.

Now if I could only find a place where the temps were always between 45 and 75 all year long with low humidity - rural, no neighbors for at least a 1/2 mile, cell service, DSL, near enough to a town to make getting supplies easy...............


Hmmmm....

I use to think that 100 was hot but since three tours in Iraq, where daytime temperatures can reach 170, I don't complain about those too much. During the winter months you have the rain and the cold and at night it can get down to around 15 degrees. So a wide range of temperatures. Still over 100 is uncomfortable, and I an fine with anything cold, love it.

For me the perfect temp is 62 in direct sunlight. Out of that sunlight and I start to get cold. What can I say, Florida blood.
Hot temps don't affect me at all. 90 to 100 is just fine. I may sweat a bit more but it's ok. Now anything below 60, brrr. Below freezing I find it hard to get by.

I find it interesting that most of you find the temperatures to be cold around the same time as here.
Considering most of you get temps to 0 F in your winter, I didn't expect most to find 40 - 50 F to be cold & chilly as well.

- Chilly mornings (anything between 30 F and 45 F mostly)

5C cool
0C should have covered the car windshield

I am with neondesert. His temps are about spot on to what i'm used to here in central TX. 90 is just a normal day--has to be 100+ to be hot. 105+ to be uncomfortable.  And anything much below 60-70 is brrr cold  :-)

>80F Miserable
60-70F Comfortable for light work
40-50'sF Aches & Pains weather (Dampness)
<30F Firewood splitting, heavy labor comfortable
(I still sweat in only my shirt sleeves doing heavy labor pretty easy down into the teens once I've aclimated to winter here.)
0-10F Comfortable without wind, clears sinus problems
<0F Cold

When I get cold, that's all that happens outside of some aches from Arthur.  My problem is when I get hot I feel down right sick.   :sad:

What do you do for medical help when you're working on project Suntan Beach?

I use my patented red inter-cooled shirt as seen in the photo.  It has tiny hollow micro fibers with 60F water circulating through them.  Problem is due to the umbilical tubes I have to stay within 200' of the space ship as it uses a heat exchanger and the AC compressor on the space ship.  Also leaving my 5000 hp turbine engine idling to drive the compressor gets expensive at today's fuel prices.

I'm watching E-bay for a used space suit to show up from NASA in the coming weeks.  No more cold water umbilical needed.   \:D/

Below 73, and it's noticeably cool. Below 60 and it's noticeably brisk. Below 54 (I am weird this way), and I've got a jacket on.

Above 75, and it's decently warm. Above 80, and I start sweating. Above 90 and I want to find water and shade.

Anything over 100, and you won't find me outside.


If you want to get extreme, last winter in Portales, NM, I remember having to go to class at 2 in the afternoon...it was -2*F.  

And I've always loved the winter time.

Temps without any relationship to DewPt don't mean a whole a lot, especially in hotter areas.

A 115F day in Phoenix in June with RH around 7-10% is really not that bad.  Much much better than say 85F in Georgia with DewPt's in the high 70F's.

Sure it is hot, but when you get into a vehicle (190F), lower the windows, turn on the AIR, and drive to end of the street is already getting comfortable.  Try that when you are somewhere with real high DewPt's, you may never get the vehicle cooled down.

The other day, Iowa was having 101F with Heat Indexes in the mid-130's... It was "ONLY" 108F and it was a lot more comfortable than there or just about anywhere in the mid-west.

We like it hot in AZ... it keeps the population down.  Can you imagine if we had winter weather here year round, there would be 90million people living in the state.  The Snowbirds are bad enough when they are here now.

We are now in our "Monsoon" but it has been fairly dry so far with DewPts dropping below 60F on a regular basis.  No fun lightning at night and next to no rain, but it has been fairly comfortable this summer compared with most of the midwest lately.

I can imaging what people in the midwest think when they see us having a high of 119F.... Armageddon ??  We had one of those the other day... RH was 7% in PHX that day.  Hot, but not that bad.

Temps without RH, DewPt can be very misleading.

All you need is Time, Aptitude and Desire ... and you can build just about anything...
