Bright sunshine, dry (of course), highs around 30 to 33C (86 to 92F) and minimum temperature no less than 16-17C (62F). This is actually the average July weather (or slightly warmer) in Aix-en-Provence, near Marseille (south of France).

In my own country, I consider highs of 25C (76-77F), a mild evening and bright sunshine already as very good summer weather.

Classically warm and sunny, 18C to 26-27C maximum, cooling off with a sea-breeze to 24C by mid to late-afternoon.(hence water temps have to be < 24C).
Temps around 28-29C are ok in inland ares of the coastal plain as well, provided that humidity is kept very low and minimums stay below 20C.

It depends. I like all sorts...

A mix of these would be nice:

A few days of 100F-105F with heavy downpours around 5pm with temps falling to the mid 80s.

85F and sunny and dew points around 65F is very comfortable.

70F and sunny and dew points around 30F is also very comfortable.

65F and 100% humidity with thunderstorms.

Classic tropical weather too...85F/75F and thunderstorms.

What's yours?
I was thinking 70 for the temperature, but I will go along with that. I don't care where the wind comes from though. About 10mph as a wind speed is good. That keeps the air fresh.

10C minimums and 25C maximums with everyday rain/shower storms delivering a montly total of about 10,000mm of rain as well as under 200 hours of sun and most important of all no excessive humidity and windless conditions.

Today's a typical load of crap epic half-baked fail when it comes to "high pressure", just a cloud choked, tedious mess. At 19C it's not really warm at all, colder than room temperature, and in the cloud and wind it feels downright cool.

I spend 9 months a year shivering and looking forward to summer, to be rewarded with 89 days of cold, cloud and rain then 3 days of "high pressure" chocked with cloud and lame temperatures just 1 degree above average, the average being freezing cold anyway. What a lame festering dumpster of a climate.

This is by far and away a million miles away from what I would want in summer. Give 20C lows and 30C highs minimum, with lots of torrential thunderstorms thrown in, for a good three months.

Today almost fits.

60s all day. A little more sun and less rain would be great, but I would rather have this all summer than 80s and 90s
