I'm such an oddball, but my favorite temps are extremes on either end! Highs in the low 90's with dewpoints between 73 and 78

or.......................

Temps between -20 and -50F, but with out a windchill. I selected 90's AND less than -10F, since that was the lowest I could choose.

How weird is that. Most people who love the 90's hate the cold and most people who love it well below 0F hate the heat! But I seem to love either of the extremes!

But like I say, I never claim to be normal with anything having to do with the weather---either in the air or on the ground!!!

Depends on the season. 70s and low 80s are awesome in the summer. 60s are great in the fall and spring. 50s are good in the winter.

Poll summary so far as of now:

Based on the poll results right now the 70s is winning this but the 50s is close second. The 80s and 60s are tied for third but is still close to first and second place. So all 4 categories are in pretty close competition. I am actually not surprised these 4 categories are doing the best.

However, I thought the 90s would do a little bit better, as well as thinking the 30s, and 20s was going to do better so I am surprised about that.

I thought the 40s would do much worse and be the least voted. Even less voted the colder categories.
I thought all the categories for the 20s and colder would do a bit worse.
I thought the 100s(from 100 to 110 or at least from 100 to 105) would get at least 1 vote from somebody.

I also noticed plenty of people voted lots of different categories and showed how they like certain types of temperature variation(5 to 7 out of 12 categories), but then there were also plenty of people that were very specific with their temperatures preferences and picked 1 or 2 out of 12 of the categories.

65F-85F all year! Mornings cool enough for a walk and afternoons warm enough for a swim.

For me mid 60's to mid 70's are just about perfect. Nice jeans and t-shirt weather. Anything above 80F and I'm dying but I can tolerate cold all the way to -30F without even blinking. I typically don't grab my jacket until the temps are down in the 20'sF.

Ok, I voted for lots of temps seeing as I do like a great deal of variety in my weather/temps!

I can deal with the below 0, easier if the wind isn't bad. I was surprised at results, votes for lower temps. I would have thought the 90's/100's would get the most.

The 90's aren't favorites, no vote there, because I get so warm and don't sweat enough. I'm a very active type and getting too warm is frustrating (and dangerous)!
