It can be 52 F (11 C) outside and my toes will cramp, maybe even hurt within 10 min.

52F is my kind of weather. Because it is not so hot that it makes you want to stay inside the house and it is not so cold that it makes you want to stay inside the house. It is perfect outdoor weather for me. 52F is cool enough for me to not fry like a piece of steak in the middle of the Nevada desert on the 4th of July and it is warm enough for me to not feel like I am going to freeze like an Eskimo.

It's hard to relax in the cold. Doesn't feel as comfortable to eat outside, or take a leisurely walk through the park. Sooner or later you will want to either get inside or quicken your pace to warm up.

Just the opposite for, when it's hot I can't stand to be outside, even just walking to car is a struggle.

Me too - I find oppressive heat to be just as uncomfortable. I'm just saying that comfortable temperatures - 70F-85F - are the best for just being relaxed outside, having a bbq, or a stroll through a park. Keep in mind that the absence of cold does have to mean 95F.

Any you get much colder than we do here in Houston. For me the best outside temp is about 55.

I second that!

You are only out for 30 seconds and you are sweating like a pig.


My perfect temperature is in the range of 30-40 degrees. I love much colder temps than that also. -31 was awesome this winter!

I have always said that 50s weather is awesome. I am glad that somebody else agrees with me.

It really depends on what you want to do. If you are going outside for a jog, or playing sports, or even just driving home after being stuck in a stuffy office all day, 50F will feel fine and refreshing. On the other hand, if you want to walk around in the park, go to a restaurant with outside seating, or just chill in your backyard with a cold beer, 50F will feel chilly.

I like being relaxed outside so I like warm temperatures. I don't like sweating either, so anything above 90 is just as bad.
