70 °F (21 °C): as long as I can
60 °F (16 °C): as long as I can
50 °F (10 °C): as long as I can
40 °F (4 °C): for 30-40 mintes
30 °F (-1 °C): for 10-15 minutes
20 °F (-7 °C): For 3-5 minutes
10 °F (-12 °C): 1-2 minutes
0 °F (-18 °C): for 20-30 seconds
-10 °F (-23 °C): for 5-10 seconds

But that is only if the sun is out... the sun hitting your skin on a bone chilling day actually feels pretty nice.

It has to be 25°C or warmer for me to do that at all. And we only reach as hot as that one two days a year on average here.
