A cool spell in a Caribbean winter, that often feels "foul."
Any temp under 80 F midday (between 11am to 4pm?), especially when accompanied by cloud, rain or wind

Toronto's summers are usually too cool for my tastes, so I like to go to the Caribbean in winter not only to get out of the cold,
but to also to get a chance to experience the summer weather I hoped to see. Most of the time I'm there I get what I want anyways, however; a heat index of 90+ F.

For me, what counts as "foul weather" is very variable, depending on my mood.
I view it as weather that causes a drastic change for the day's plans, hopes or expectations, in a negative way.

Ex:
70 F in March would be cause for a drastic change of plans, but it would never be unwelcome.
70 F in July by contrast could be viewed as foul, especially if one had plans to go to the beach for swimming.

Too long a period of rain duration is always a bummer, regardless of the temps.
I remember a few Junes where it'd rained 27 days, and if you counted "rainy hours," it'd probably number at least 100.

*Your rainy-misery has helped keep Toronto mild, so I hear...

I need some foul weather. Need some rain before wildfires start breaking out. Bring it on.

Agreed...too much rain and grey skies makes people depressed regardless of temperature. There are a disproportionately high number of people here who suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder....it's not that great.

Yeah, I heard you guys back in Toronto have had a mild fall at least compared to the average temps for this time of year. It will be interesting to see how things play out for the rest of the winter...

Foul weather:

cold, overcast, damp, drizzly crap.

i.e. Vancouver, Ireland

The foulness of the temp varies by season.

i.e. 20C/68F in winter in Melbourne would be seen as awesome. In summer, freezing cold crap.

We've had foul weather here for the past 4-5 weeks. Raining and windy everyday. Crappy 50F temps. Sun shines for five minutes, then it starts raining again.

Today we've had plenty of hail but no lightning (which is forecasted), wind gusts over 60mph, had gusts over 70mph on Sunday and last night. I'd love if it was either scorching hot or freezing cold - at least it would be a change from this crap.
