Hot: Over 80 degrees

Warm: 69-79 (very comfortable, in my opinion).

Cool: 59-68 (but still comfortable)

Cold: Below 57 degrees

Frigid: Below 40 degrees or lower (in my opinion. It's too cold for me, that's for sure).

Yes, all in Fahrenheit.

Note: Hot or Blazing doesn't bother me, I actually love when its that hot.

Honestly, I do too! I prefer it hot or blazing. I don't have to wear too much clothing when it gets like that (I literally live in my swimsuit at those times, with shorts, ball cap, and sandals). Comfortable for me...I guess I'm like a lizard...LOL!!!

Interesting how it seems that most people who prefer "cool/cold weather" typically have temperature-sensations rated "one notch" below mine. What you call hot, I call warm. What you call warm, I call cool etc. O.P. is also almost-precisely one notch below my ratings.

I know you like "cool weather" and you'd probably like it here.
Funny that what I call "cool weather" only predominates in the warmest 5 months of the year in Toronto.
For your body-type, it would feel "cool-to-warm" 8-10 months a year. (significant improvement, imho)

That's what you get when people are used to a maritime climate with (relatively) little temperature variation. We are spoiled by the gulf stream in the winter stopping it getting too cold.

Though I personally can cope with the kind of heat that would have most English people passing out. I wear a fleece exercising outdoors up to 28c/82f without breaking a sweat, let alone feeling "hot", so I definitely do not do "cold", and would find a Minnesota/most other north USA states winter shear hell. Bad enough here.

Are you originally from Florida? Just curious. Based on this, you have quite the tolerance for cold weather!

Haha actually I'm originally from Venezuela.....which is actually warmer than Florida depending on where you go. . I just find I'm much more comfortable in cold weather, I went to Saranac Lake, NY one winter break and it got down to -36F one night and I'm more comfortable and happy at that temperature than I am at 95 , it's a bit odd.....hot weather makes me very grumpy and tired.

To me:

scorching hot- 95 and up
hot - 85 and up
cold- 50 and below
bitter cold- 30 and below

Our highs in summer are rarely above 100 and our lows in winter are rarely below 15. Our warmest average high in July is 86 and coldest average low in January is 25.
