I wear a jacket 200-250 days per year in LA. No jacket in July, August, and September and June and October can be iffy. Other than that it gets cold enough at night for a jacket. Even indoors since so many places run AC all day.

The funny thing about that picture is that was probably in the teens with a stiff wind when it was taken!

I ditto this, but a sweatshirt/hoodie rather than an actual jacket. We have big temperature swings here. It's dipping into the low 50s at night, so even though it's back up to the 80s in the afternoons, I feel chilly in the evenings and early mornings. It will probably be late May or early June before I put the sweatshirts away for the summer.

Yeah, by jacket I meant a hoodie or a sweater.

Lmao

This.

It was in the 50's this morning which is perfect short sleeve shirt weather. I won't bring out a jacket for a few months.

If 50s is perfect for short sleeves, how do you feel when it's 60, 70, 80, and 90?

Like I'm going to die (above 70).

I'm a northerner through and through. Milwaukee is the farthest south I've lived in 15 years and before that it was in Northern Ohio. I like cold weather. I spend most of my free time in the ice rink either playing hockey myself or watching my kids play. And I'm normally showing up in flip flops, shorts and a tank top. Who can play hockey in pants or long sleeves? Half the time I don't even wear the shorts to play .

When highs are in the fifties, I'm wearing sweaters or hoodies, scarves, booties, that sort of thing - and loving it.

When highs are in the 90s, I'm pretty oblivious - till it gets above about 95 and then I'm like, "You know what...it's hot out here."

LA is tricky as itís relatively warm year round but due to the drier climate, sometimes you may need a light jacket even in summer nights. Etc etc.

Completely random absurd topic I know. Sue me.

Now do your town. Go.
Wow, this is a tough one, because for instance, the weather where I am right now is trending upwards of 90 degrees during the day, but then down to the 40's at night.

So, you would have to differentiate as to when a jacket is needed. Do you average the temperature and then decide if that average warrants a jacket? What are the parameters? If daytime highs are a certain figure? Does is matter if it's cold at night?

Many desert areas, depending on elevation, will be really hot during sunlight hours and then really cold at night.

So, I think you need to set some parameters here.
