Sometimes it seems like someone like only sunshine and no clouds/rain and then others that like clouds/rain and no sunshine.

It makes no sense why you do not like sunshine. I understand if you like cloudy/rainy weather but really, no sunshine?
It's really all relative. I came from South Texas where it was hot and humid 5 months out of the year and the sun was just a nuisance. It burned you, it was hot and made you sweat, people would park under trees and shade because it heated up your car so fast. Clouds and rain were the only relief. What I liked more than rain was the dark clouds with that refreshing wind that felt "cool". That way you could be outdoors and rain wouldn't hamper your plans or day.

My point it who really wants constant sun on hot days or rain on cold days. Most people would probably want the opposite. So in places where it's hotter longer, those people might like rain. And vice versa. I know that now that I've moved to Colorado, the sun and I have become good friends. Though with summer approaching, I'd still like more cloud cover.

I prefer cloudy weather, even during the winter when the sun isn't much of an issue as far as comfort is concerned. Some sunny days are okay, but not too many.

That is probably over 10F below normal I would think, assuming that is the low min for the day. That is pretty impressive for a more stable climate like you have. Seems that temps are to warm up according to the Met Office. They are calling for a prolonged drought over France this summer and that could impact Britain.

I'll be spending the afternoon in a nice air conditioned movie theater.
Below 60F and pouring rain is not good for outdoor activities. In fact it can be a recipe for hypothermia.

I was referring to 60 F under dry conditions.

But since you bring it up, I easily stay warm and dry with a good jacket and waterproof boots whenever I find myself outside on a rainy day. Even when dressed properly, hot days can still be miserable and potentially dangerous.

I don't believe it often "pours" rain in Seattle. Regardless, I used to bike to work year round and was always most comfortable when it was 40-55 and drizzly outside. Anything warmer than 55-60 and I would get warmer than I prefer for riding. Actually I was in Seattle in November and did a ton of walking in what they call "rain" (I call drizzle) and it was in the 40s most of the time. I was actually sweating more often than not when walking around in that weather.

I had such a great day in New York City today with it being around 85 degrees, sunny without a cloud in the sky, going to the beach, going into the ocean and swimming there, getting a tan and wearing comfortable clothing with it still feeling warm. There were plenty of other people in the water too.

It was hotter in Philadelphia, Washington DC and places in the South but I am sure it was just as enjoyable for those places too!
