Pretty much agree with this; maybe spread the intervals out a bit more though (like -40/-25/-5/+10/+25 F instead of -40/-22/-13/0/14 F).

How I would classify warm and cold is purely subjective and depends on the time of year. I would consider 70 F cold during summer yet the same temperature during mid winter I would consider record heat, so it’s all relative and depends on what season it is.

This would be my classification:

Incredibly hot: 97+
Very, very hot: 90-96
Very hot: 83-89
Hot: 76-82
Very warm: 70-75
Warm: 63-69
Mild: 53-62
Cool: 46-52
Very cool: 40-45
Cold: 32-39
Very cold: 21-31
Very, very cold: 10-20
Incredibly cold: Below 10

Anyway, just a bit of background; I'm from a coastal town in North Wales and so I am used to a very mild climate with average July highs of 67f and average January lows of 38f. Having said this, I did live in central Florida for three years where an average day in each of the five-month summers would reach a high of around 92f and have 80% humidity. I'd have to say I'm glad to now be back in Cymru (Wales)!

It would change.

For summer:

If the weather is sunny, lower temps are hot. If the humidity is high, that's gonna be ultra worse.

For winter:

Again, is there sun or not and is there wind or not?



In non-windy weather:

I would say -26°C and below is extreme cold. It becomes hell burning like cold.

If there is wind, that number will be warmer temperature-wise of course.

In Summer:

If the weather is dry and there is no sun, even 40°C is not feeling hot ( for outdoor temperature).

But for indoor, in anyway, it would be worse than terrible.

Why?

The weather moves outside while at home, it's not moving anywhere so even that dry weather inside room will feel as if it is way too humid.

Default I can tolerate COLD temperatures

BOILING-45 - 50C
VERY HOT- 37.5 - 45C
HOT- 23.5 - 37.5C
WARM- 12 - 23.5C
AVERAGE- 5.5-12C
COOL- -10-5.5C
COLD- -20 - -10C
VERY COLD- -20 - -40C
FREEZING Below 40F/C

Yes, I realize I have a horrible heat tolerance and mind boggling cold tolerance.
I'm from the mountains where temperatures can drop down to -25C sometimes.
Just barely reaches 1C in the summers too at mid-noon and drops to -5C in night summer.
