You have a very similar taste to me regarding the heat tolerance.

Depends on the season.

In winter, "hot" doesn't occur but anything above 20 F would be considered mild.

In spring and fall, 70 and above is hot.

In summer, 80 and above is hot.

Moderate temperatures with high relative humidity produce an absolutely disgusting sensation where it feels as if the moisture is condensing on your skin, but also pulling the sweat out of your body. Higher temps, in sunlight, despite the high RH%, still feel "cleaner" than a clammy southern summer morning. This feeling is again produced at nightfall, when I've seen temps stay well into the 80s as late as 11pm.

I prefer the 50s - 60s but can deal with temps to the upper 70s if there are lots of clouds. Cloudless days are awful unless it's winter, and you want the sun for warmth. It's just too much sun in the summer. I seek shade then. Half cloudy is very nice for me. It blocks the sun part of the time, and they are pretty to look at. Cloudless skies are boring. It all looks the same with nothing to break up the monotony, lol. Pretty much like it's been around here for several weeks, in the 90's, few clouds with no rain. But it cools off at night, thank God. But everything is drying out . Looking forward to Fall. I enjoy the rain.

As others have said, it really depends on the humidity. If it's dry I don't get uncomfortable until around 82-85F; but in a more humid climate, anything above 75-ish can feel quite warm.

Bottom line: I'd still rather be in 110F temps in Las Vegas, than 80F in New Orleans (for example). And I've lived in both types of climates, so I know this from experience.

Also, I think you do build up a tolerance to your local weather after a while - so what's normally considered cold or hot might not feel that way, depending on how the weather typically is there. When I was living in South Lake Tahoe, where it can get VERY cold in the winter, and stays dry/comfortable in the summer, I became rather intolerant of warmer weather. One day I was driving home from work, when I felt hot enough to take off my sweater (leaving me in a lightweight turtleneck). Then I passed one of those bank thermometers, and it was only like 32F! Guess that's hot compared to the single-digit temps we'd been having, lol.

The Willamette valley isn't generally too humid. I can handle temps up to 90, but really prefer temps around 80. I lived in Biloxi Mississippi for a while and I hated the humidity. It would be around 90 in the afternoon and then the thunder clouds moved in. Rained like crazy but didn't seem to cool off at all and humidity was horrible!


Where we live now, humidity is generally about 40% with temps 85 to 90. Pretty comfortable for the most part.
