What is the Coldest temperature at which you have worn short sleeve shirts or T shirts outside (add blouses if you are a woman).

My lowest is 52 F (11 C), and I am never doing it again in my life . No intention of freezing my tender & tan arms. The low was 37 F that day, and thankfully I wore a sweatshirt in the evening.

And Duration must be longer than 5 minutes. I have stood out in snow for a couple seconds without bundling up, but that does not count.

17 F for like 1 minute on a trip to Lake Tahoe. I woke up and stepped outside the hotel room and onto the balcony wearing jammies (short sleeved top), closed the sliding door, just stood there for a minute enjoying the view (also to see how the cold would feel), and then went back into the warm room once the cold air really hit me.

I wear them all year, and if I have to go outside for just a few minutes don't bother with a jacket. That means 10F was the coldest, though that was unusual here, normally about 18-20F.

About 11 F on a cold January morning in North GA in 2008 for about 3 minutes. Was part of a dare

I wore short sleeves in 52 F for 15-20 minutes. I want durations longer than 5 minutes.

Standing outside for 1 minute in snow wearing short sleeves isnt a big deal.

Probably around upper 50s F in the direct sun with no wind. Our summer mornings are like that when I walk my dog around 7AM.

For longer than 5 minutes, probably about 40 F. But it was bright and sunny so it wasn't that bad, but when the wind blew even a little it was kind of bitter though.

My longest duration outside in short sleeves under chilly conditions was this May, when I spent 90 minutes driving at 72 mph through Tennessee with the windows down in 57 F and sunny weather early in the morning. However, it warmed up to 70 F once I reached I 40 near Knoxville. Upper 50s with sunshine and no wind feels quite warm.

What part of TN where you in? 57 F sounds quite cool for May during the daytime in TN.

9 AM near the Great Smoky mountains national forest. Started out as a foggy 54 F morning with sunlight streaming through at 7:30 AM. By 9 AM, the fog had disappeared completely.
