I went to Kentucky Kingdom yesterday and today, July 18-19, and...

Let it be known. Let the word be known. High 80s (86-89 F / 30-32 C) even with relatively low humidity (dew points below 60 F / 16 C) is HOT in direct sunlight. It's not bad in the shade.

80s definitely. 70s I consider warm-ish but comfortable. But if you add high humidity, then even 75 degrees will feel hot and stuffy.
I actually prefer sweater weather (meaning, San Francisco type of weather). I live in Southern California (in Cerritos -- which is about 8 miles from the coast), and I feel it gets too hot here. We are generally a good 8-10 degrees warmer than the coastal region (but sometimes we can be 15-20 degrees warmer in the summer), so we lose much of that coastal cooling effect.
High temperatures in the 60s are ideal to me (68 is about perfect).

Cerritos is nice but yeah it gets hot. I cold called every business there way back in the late 90's when it was cooler back then, but it was brutal walking with shirt and tie, sweat fest every day.

Part of why I believe Cerritos gets warm is it is "surrounded" by 3 freeways (605,91,5) and all those cars generate heat.

Nice middle class community. Have a couple of friends that live there.

Not if it's low humidity. In the morning here in FL, it is usually 70s to low 80s but extremely humid. The humidity makes it feel hotter and damp. By noon time to one pm, as it gets hotter, the humidity lessens a bit.

There have been times when it was 70s to 80s with low humidity and it's comfortable. It feels cool and dry.

In the Midwest, I consider 76 to 83 toasty but not over the top. When it’s mid 80s it can be uncomfortable but still tolerable to an extent with ample drinking water. About 92 it becomes intolerable. This implies 45 to 75% humidity.


On the flip side, during the summer, anything cooler than 70 is too cool and I need blankets and long sleeves until it reaches 70s.

Hot starts to me at about 32/33C or 90F. Where I currently live is incapable of getting "hot" weather, but I have lived in places that could get it once a year maybe.

I think your standard for “hot” would probably be lower if you had 70F/21C dew points or higher. I don’t imagine that any part of England gets dewpoints that high very often, if at all.

You'd think wrong. I have a high heat tolerance and low cold tolerance. I still wear 2-3 layers of clothing in 30°C because it's not that hot to me. I've experienced dewpoints above 21 degrees with hot weather (abroad) and found it good. Doesn't matter that I live in England. Unlike most people here I find England cold including in summer. My ideal summer temperature and dewpoint is 35C/25C. Perfect. Only in summer though, the rest of the year would be cooler.

Oh by the way England does get dewpoints over 70 (75 is the record) but not very often. Still I've had high 30's with 70's dewpoints abroad and I love it.

In my mind hot starts at 30C/86F. I think at least a few countries' weather services use that definition.

It depends whether the sun is shining, or not - with full sun, even the 60s can feel hot
