Cold is all about how you get dressed.

If you wear a t-shirt at 13*C, 13*C is cold
If you wear coats, gloves, hat at -2*C, -2*C is very warm. Yes Minus 2 is very warm. If I get dressed heavy ( gloves, hat), I sweet at -2*C. Yes, I sweet at -2*C.

There is no cold but how you get dressed.

I'm sticking with this diagram I made. It seems pretty neutral and accurate to me.

(Edit: the Celsius mild range should be 18-29, not 28-29. Oops! )

What is cold/warm mostly depends on the climate you have adjusted to living in. Also cold as to what? needing a heavy coat, gloves, or just a light jacket. So many variables.

Even living in a cold climate, if I would go out in shorts and a t-shirt at 55F I will be a bit chilly....and not want to stay outside for long. However if have long pants, and a light jacket you are fine. Plus if any wind that adds a lot.
