I rarely ever wear just a T-shirt. So maybe at least 22-24°C in sun with no wind. Below 22-23 just moving around makes it feel cold with a T-shirt only.

In continental climates, most people perceive temperatures differently at different points in the year. I've been comfortable in February and March with the conditions you have described at 50F/10C without a jacket on, and 59F/15C with shorts and a T-shirt, but I would feel uncomfortable in those conditions in August or September so lightly clad. Then the point of shorts and a T-shirt is about 72F/22C and jacket is 59F/15C.

As for the sensation of uncomfortable heat, it's largely a matter of humidity. If the dewpoint is 74F/24F, I'm probably going to be feeling awfully sticky at 86F/30C. If the dewpoint is 50F/10C, then not so much so. Here I usually reduce my time outside when it gets above that point.

For cold, I refuse to spend much time outside when it gets below 20F/-7C. No matter how well-dressed I am, I can't spend much time outside when the temperature is below about 5F/-15C, except maybe if I am layered ridiculously.

I just wear shorts and T-shirt year around, and have one or two extra layers, for when it gets colder. I don't really have a jacket as such (other than for skiing )

The air temperature here seldom gets uncomfortably hot. It's really just a matter of how hot the sun is. Had some visitors this morning, and everyone opted to sit under shade, at about 20C/68F -burn time would have been about 10 minutes.

Cold rain and wind here, don't really bother me much. I can just as easily spend all day wet, as long as I'm moving.
