I consider below about 50 (10) to be cold, which means that the average annual temperature of my area is in the cold range.

The mean annual minimum for Tampa is 30.2 (-1.0), so I wouldn't imagine 30s would be too rare...

Used not to be rare. But with the super warm winters the last many years it is rare. I live 25 miles northwest of Tampa on the gulf and avg around 3 degrees colder. I saw one nite in the 30's last winter and one nite in the 30's the winter before. I used to get at least a nite below freezing every winter and then many in the 20's back in the 80's.

Now 40's fishing offshore on the gulf at nite with water temps in the upper 50's and the wind blowing 20knts is the coldest i have ever been. Water temps really can make it feel much colder at nite fishing 80 miles offshore when the wind is blowing.

Summer time water temps around 90 don't help with cooling you down. Some of the hottest weather and humid weather is fishing offshore with glass calm seas as you just cook with no wind at all.

In winter, 50F and above feels nice to me. Below 50F feels chilly, but I wouldn't necessarily call it "cold" if it's above freezing. So I guess 32F is where I draw the line.

In summer anything below 60F feels "cold."

Somewhere between 32 to 45F starts cold for me, but it isn't bad really. Above 45F is generally okay until it gets very hot. Though depending on how acclimated I am, either 45F or 32F is cold to me.

I've lived in the Twin Cities almost through 2 winters and chilly seems to be 10-15F, cold is below 10 degrees. Anything from 25-75 is great and 80 or above is sweltering.

In Texas, anything under 50F was considered to be "cold" while 60-70 is chilly. Anything from 75-95 was great and above 95 means be careful when you're drinking a 12-pack of Shiner on a boat.

With my current tolerance.


-10C to 0C/14F to 32F: Warmer
-15C to -10C/5F to 14F: Quite Cool
-25C to -15C/-13F to 5F: Cold
-35C to -25C/-31F to -13F: Very cold
-35C/-31F and below: Bitterly Cold

In my opinion, -25C/-13F, even when it isn't windy, it when the air starts to really feel different to me. Temperatures warmer than that don't feel quite as nippy to me, but when it gets that cold it just feels a bit more biting by that point. Something similar happens when it gets to about about my body temperature at 37C/98F. The air still doesn't feel quite oppressive at 35C/95F, it actually feels like a very warm blanket out of a dryer, when it isn't humid of course. Though, at 98F/37C, that is when it starts to feel oppressive.


Edit: Wow looking above at my old posts at how I was in my old hot climate. Dang acclimation really is a thing :P
