When I lived in Edmonton, Alberta as a kid if it got above freezing--say about 2-3 c or 35-38f in the middle of winter; there'd always be some crazy kids that would rip off their jackets and run around at recess in their t-shirts. Part of it was just kid bravado, but also after a winter of often -20 c days anything above felt warm--your blood was so thick at that point that with 40 degree days you were ready to BBQ.

I live in Ohio and I wear shorts and hoodie when it's thirty degrees out. It wouldn't be bad at all if it weren't for the wind, that's what makes it bone chilling.

After a long winter I agree that thirties are not that bad and I have been seen in a short sleeved shirt at those temps, but 0F is a bit chilly any time of year, no matter how cold it has been in the weeks prior.

Hawaii and the keys are it. South padre Island on the southern Texas coast is t-shirt weather for all but maybe 6 weeks out of the year but it does drop down into the 40's a few days a year.

There are times I've had to layer up here in Huntington Beach (Southern California). We have quite a few 45 degree days and 32 degree evenings during December/January.

The High Desert Can get very cold (20s), too.

I think the only place in the USA where it is shorts and t shirts all year would be Hawaii and South Florida.

Miami is the only place.

Even in California and the Desert SW, there are times in the year (mainly the winter time) where highs may not get out of the 60s, which IM is too cold for t'shirts and shorts.

If you draw a line across Florida from West Palm Beach south to the Florida Keys/Key West would be more of an appropriate statement.
