Partly to mostly cloudy. Low 43F. High 66F. Obviously subject to certain day-to-day variations; I wouldn't want it to be the same every day.

20-23 and 24-26 are OK for summer.

Now, more than 26 is just a nightmare.

Of course, i live in the wrong place, cause the +26 happen from October till May and in Dec/Jan/feb is almost always above 30c. And the 26 can happen in the winter, even.
So, basically, 26+ is a temperature that can ocurr anytime.

I need to move to northern England, lol

Say goodbye to your beloved sunny winter days (and to sunshine, more generally).

As for myself : 27-30C sounds perfect aka about 5/6C higher than my ideal winter temps.

I clicked on 24-26C.
In fact, I would like my hottest month to have average highs of 27C, but without high humidity, and nights of 16C. Then it is hot at noon, warm in most of the day and sleepable at night. And the rest of the summer would have high temperatures in the 24-26C range. It feels like summer but not oppressing to me.

23C and below is nice weather, but having lived in Brazil all my life I just can't associate that with summer. I like my T-shirt/shorts temperature a bit higher.

Where I live, in So Paulo, I feel pretty much oppressed in summer, however. The hottest month is 28C/19C, which is a bit too much, very sticky also. 28C days are even okay, the problem is that temperatures above 30C are common, and if there isn't scorching sunshine, there are very strong thunderstorms, which may even sound interesting, but is not practical to urban life at all.

Today got to 23.5C and at midnight it's still 18C. Well within comfortable range and unless I wanted to go swimming or something I see no point in it being any warmer.

I picked 27-30C. But my image of a perfect summer day, with summer at its fullest is an 88F day with a low-ish dewpoint (55-60F) and a deep blue sky. Maybe not the most comfortable but I enjoyed the feel and is great for swimming.

Over 33C/91F, I want summer to feel like summer. A range between 88 & 95 would be perfect for me, with some occasional extremes (100F+) thrown in.
