04/02: 13.1/23.3
05/02: 14/ 24.7
06/02: 11.3/22
07/02: 14.6/23.2

they are even some swimming pool days in there. To me, those numbers are perfect summer weather.

In january, however, even with those 10c substraction, there would we days that ill find too hot.
Fully agreed! We had 26C today - very pleasant to sit outside doing very little in, but enough to make me glad we don't have it every day for months.

Generally temps over that are dry, certainly on the east coast here.
Hence the "feel" difference between 31C and 34C can be quite variable.
I sweat more at 30 C/86 F in Townsville's Wet Season than I ever did at 40 C/104 F in Western Australia.

Neither were unbearable,
but I would say Townsville Wet is less comfortable when you sweat,
you sweat new layers of sweat on top of older layers
so you eventually feel like you're covered in warm butter.

At 40 C in West Oz I'm never sweat free either,
but personally it felt like my sweat-layer was half as thick
as if the air was drinking it off me almost as fast as I could make it.

Maybe I'm more humidity-tolerant than average
or sweaty sensations both some people a lot more than it does for me.

For me, 75F/24C with light to moderate breeze and partly cloudy skies. Night temps of no more than 60F/15C with little to no breeze. Unfortunately, here it's been mid to upper 80s/28-32C everyday for weeks with lows around 65F/18C to 70F/21C but now finally cooling down a bit

Highs of 23C, lows of 11C, mostly sunny or totally sunny (I usually prefer cumulus to be present) humidity below 45% with dew points between 5C and 13C, resulting in crystal clear visibility for miles and miles.

Spells of heat and humidity for the sake of thunderstorms and interest, and spells of wetter and cloudier weather, especially in June.

I'm terrible with the whole dew points thing, but I second dry nights. As an aspiring amateur astronomer, I need to have clear skies at night to see the stars properly

wow astronomer! thats so cool!

Having dry cool nights in summer will be like a dream come true for me and something so different that what im used too, in where nights are sticky and sauna like. Between december and the end of february i didnt use anything more than sleevless t shirt at night. I never needed anything more. A very light sleevles t shirt with a skirt or a light summer dress. Never needed not even the lightest little jacket, not even a t shirt with the tiniest sleeves, anything. I HATED that so much.

30C/14C for me for July. New York City was 30/21 this July and about 32/22 last July, and 32/23 July 2010 with a mean of 27.8C (one of the hotter months on record).
