What is your ideal outdoor temperature? And explain why?

For me its 50 degrees because that is neither hot nor cold and I can exert myself without sweating much. Also itll be 70 indoors(without heater) when its 50 outdoors. Always much warmer indoors because of all the appliances running that generate heat and the house traps heat like a greenhouse.

I think I like the cooler weather. Cannot stand humidity. Where I live now is still too hot in the summer. Where (other than Anchorage) is it coolest? I don't mind rain, and would pick Seattle, but my husband doesn't like rain. I heard Monterey/Santa Cruz Calif is nice?

Is it during the day or night. Wind or not? I like it under 70 at all times, like indoor temps between 60-70 depending on activity. While doing physical work or lifting weights I can sweat at temps below that. For heavy outside digging or lifting anything works until 45 where I start to feel cold. My biggest complaint is the cool air dries me out and I get the cracked lips, quite inconvelient. Cool air is refreshing, while hot air is draining.

Right around 70-80 is quite comfortable. Anything below 60 I consider cold (below 50 would be very cold) and anything above 100 I consider very hot. The summers here are brutal but the winters are to die for.

Right now it's 78! I'm sitting outside with a glass of wine, typing on my laptop, and enjoying my view of the golf course; life DOES NOT get any better than this .

Should be no surprise to anyone I picked the 40's, I do love the cold weather.
Too bad we hardly ever get it in Houston.

Y'all seem to be forgetting that time honored statement:

It's not the heat, it's the humidity.

I have a much wider comfortable temperature range with low humidity.
