It didn't require the afternoon before sunset to be hot?

I'll through out some possible daily hi/lo combos to see what you think:

84/70 F (29/21 C)

82/75 F (28/24 C)

80/72 F (27/22 C)

78/73 F (26/23 C)

77/75 F (25/24 C)

This is purely fictional,
so you wouldn't have need to have stagnant wind and stiffling humidity that typically accompany those hi/lo patterns.
You can specify humidity and wind patterns that would make such forecasts agreeable to you.
I've seen some forecasts like this in Toronto and when they come with windy conditions, I don't usually see grumpy faces.

I hardly ever meet people unhappy because it's just warm,
so perhaps there might be a lot of "heat haters" here that might not mind this.

80/72 F looks nice, provided that humidity is low and there's a light breeze.

An ever present breeze would make all of them comfortable, with low humidity.

Yea, I agree 80/72 looks like decent, provided the dew points aren't 72°F.

But you could have low temperatures colder that and still have warm sunset temperatures. At least for us, the low temperature is only for a few hours right around sunrise and sunset is usually much warmer than the low.

For me, warmth in the dark ends at about 75 F/24 C, so that's why I picked that hi/lo range.

Usually temperatures at, or just after sunset match the daily mean; my suspicion, through personal observation.

In Toronto summer,
it is probably a heatwave causing warmth after dark, but not always.
But they are somewhat rare and I learned to savour those occasions.

If they were accompanied by low humidity, and some wind then they'd be comfy. Otherwise they still seem to be uncomfortable.

How low is low enough humidity?

I would consider a dewpoint of 65 F/18 C or lower to be on the lower end of typical for that temperature range.

65°F is fine for that temperature range. Not my ideal, but ok.

I think I'd like 82/75 best... I love climates with low diurnal ranges... since you know night time won't cool off that much and you can go out and enjoy late evening without worry of getting cold
