Interesting thread, this should be fun.

SUMMER
Hot............... 95 F and above (wow we agree, I've believed this since 1994)
Very Warm..... 85-94 F
Warm............ 80-84 F
Cool(ish)........ 75-79 F
Cool.............. 74-68 F
Quite Cool...... 60-67 F
Cold.............. 59 F or lower
Very Cold....... 49 F or lower

WINTER
Warm............ Dunno, it's never warm; daily record-highs are usually in the 50's F
Cool............. 55 F or higher
Mild.............. 45 F or higher
Cold............. 39 F or lower
Very Cold...... 25 F or lower
Extreme Cold. 10 F or lower


SPRING/FALL
Hot............... 90 F or above (if it happens at all; maybe twice a decade)
Very Warm..... 75 F or higher
Warm............ 65 F and above
Cool.............. 55-64 F
Mild.............. 48-54 F
Cold.............. 45 F or lower
Very Cold....... 39 F or lower
Extreme Cold... 25 F or lower


*I noticed you put "Mild" as warmer than "cool." I don't know about most Canadians, but "Mild" to me indicates a weaker kind of cold, since "winter is supposed to be cold; at least here." "Cool" to me sounds like an absense of cold, something our mild winter weather doesn't have. Also "Mild" would never be used in a summer forecast, as summer itself is supposed to mean an absense of cold. Maybe it's a Canadian thing?

Here in Australia we refer to mild as being warmer than cool, but cooler than warm

The bureau of metreology uses this system to describe temps, in order of increasing warmness;

very cold
cold
cool
mild
warm
hot
very hot

So that would be my made-up word "Coolish"?

Do you sweat when it's not warm too?

I only sweat when it's very warm or hot, I'm sick or I'm very stressed out.
In a normal year here, the air itself can make me sweat only about 10-20 days.
In Myrtle Beach, SC in August on a 10 day vacation I only sweat about half the days I'm there.

Anything below 70 and I begin to get cold, if its close to or below 60, I actually break down and wear long pants.

For me, 90 is getting HOT, 95 is WAY too hot. I tend to get dehydrated easily.
