You mentioned that you have lived in Minneapolis and have encountered -15 in winter, so you should know what it feels like. not too bad, I think

Yeah, i know, but i experienced cold only that one time (and one or two more times in Bariloche, Argentina) and i experience intense heat every freaking december! (until March), so i just may be a little biased against heat cause i actually have to deal with it .

However, i also know that i wouldnt stand 0c and below 0 temperatures!

Below 30 F really isn't bad. If it's windy it can be brutal, but if it's calm, it's quite pleasant if you're wearing a jacket.

I voted for every single category. Didn't think it would change much the poll but apparently I account for 50% of the 100s voters.
More seriously I don't have any favourite temperature. I might like 20s, 50s or 90s depending on the time of the year but I wouldn't like them around year-round.
The rare times I experienced the 100s and the only time I experienced below -10F I loved it. Maybe because of the novelty...I don't think I'd want to make them my average summer or winter temperatures.
But my dream climate would have at least 5 days in each category every year.

My temperature preferences changed quite a bit since the last time I posted here and created this thread.
I would say now that my favorite all time temperatures are easily the mild 60s/50s. After that, I still like 80s, 90s, and 70s plenty of times but not quite as much as 60s/50s.
I regret voting 30s/20s on this thread. Most of the time, I hate 30s/20s. I only voted for them because I like snow sometimes and at the very least on top of mountains, and those temperatures help create snow.
Sometimes, I like the 40s but not enough to vote for them in a favorite temperatures poll. Plus, I dislike the 40s plenty of times.

So this is my current favorite temperatures in this exact order: 60s, 50s, 70s, 80s, 90s.


For the current poll results, I am very surprised 60s/50s are not winning 1st place and that the 70s are winning over the 60s/50s!

And I guess it is a bit surprising that 20s, 10s, 0’s to -10, and below-10 got so many more votes than the 100s.
I thought there were many more people that liked the lowest end of the 100s(100 to 107 degrees) enough to vote for them in the poll.

Maybe I should have created two different 100’s categories with 100 to 109, and also 110+, and some more below 0 categories.

Between single digit Fahrenheit and 70's Fahrenheit is good for me.

I voted for below -10, 20s, and 60s-80s.

Below -10 has a novelty factor to it and would be very interesting when it occurred.

20s is ideal winter weather, with snow. Not real cold, and better than 30s because it often rains in the 30s.

60s, 70s, and 80s for late spring, summer, and early autumn weather. 60s are ideal highs around April-May and October, 80s are ideal in June, July, and August.
