Early Spring is cooler, although it doesn't feel like it since the sunshine is noticeably stronger and you're acclimated to lower temperatures coming out of winter.

Late Autumn is cooler than early spring here, which would be expected as the first month of winter is colder than the last month of winter.

March and November is almost the same here.
November is slightly warmer due to warmer lows.

March is a cold slushy mess. We can still have beautiful days in November. My son wasborn on one. March? Not so much.

Late fall is much colder. But, early fall is much warmer than late spring. Our springs are just much longer than our falls. I think last winter we hit our lowest overnight low on November 30th.

In Nice, late autumn is warmer than early spring. In Paris, it's the contrary.

Every city I've lived in over the last 20 years or so has taken longer to warm up and longer to cool down than it did generally when I was a kid. I don't know why.

I recall many Aprils when it was 70 degrees and we had the windows open and one April 1 the morning DJs gave a forecast of snow, and it was so ludicrous because it wouldn't be snowing at all at that point and the forecast was an April Fool's joke. But lately, I've seen plenty of snowflakes (not lasting ones, but enough) in April.

And many days in May were over 90 degrees. I remember this very well, because the school's policy was that they would not turn on the air conditioner until June 1. But, while there have been a couple, there have been very few 90 degree May days in the last 15-20 years.

Conversely, I've had my kids wearing shorts and even short sleeve shirts for many days well into October and even into November. I had long sleeved Halloween t-shirts that were too hot for them to wear for much of October and I had to be sure to buy them short sleeved ones.

And it used to be pretty darn cold in November, whereas Novembers have been fairly warm in recent years. We used to always wear wool sweaters, but it has often been too warm for sweaters at Thanksgiving.

So, the answer is Spring is colder. Significantly.

I'd prefer it got cold earlier and warmed up earlier. By March I'm ready for Spring. I want to be able to not wear a winter coat. I want to walk outside and comment how nice it is. But those days are pretty rare.

I voted early spring but I didn't reference data first; just going on what I "feel". In southern Colorado at 6,500ft elevation we frequently are wearing shorts in October/November also. NEVER in March.

Mean temp in November: 50.7 F
Mean temp in March: 52.2 F

I guess late autumn is cooler.

Early spring.
Here in los Angeles, in the spring, the water temp causes us to have a marine layer which hangs around for most of the morning causing a cool day which is known as May Gray or June Gloom.
In the fall, like what we are going through right now, the high pressure systems cause the Santana winds to come out of the desert which kick up the temps to the high 90's which can go into November.
