These are heat indexes/wind chills since they are more accurate for how it really feels.

Blazing: 121F and Higher
Hot: 106F - 120F
Warm: 75F - 105F
Cool: 55F - 74F
Cold: 45F - 54F
Frigid: 44F and Below

Note: Hot or Blazing doesn't bother me, I actually love when its that hot.

I guess even a warmish Toronto winter day for you is "frigid"?

These adjectives are very season dependent but let me try:
Blazing: never experienced .. over 105F I guess
Hot: 90+F
Warm: 75-89F
Cool: 50-74F
Cold: 20-50F
Frigid: below 20F

Depends on if it's windy or cloudy when it's just above freezing.

Toronto is "frigid" (or colder) about 4 months a year, with few exceptions.
Toronto hardly-ever sees any hot days (we didn't this year )
Toronto's summer warmth is often unreliable.

*I guessed on "blazing" too; I've never experienced that outdoors. (sauna? definitely)

In England "hot" to me is about 30c/86f or warmer. I could cope with up to 40c/104f comfortably though as I like heat.

Cold is less than 15c/59f. Freezing is less than about 7-8c/45f.

Most English people are very intolerant to heat as they are used to our climate. Most people here seem to think over 22-23c/73f is "sweltering".

In summer, I consider anything in daytime above 90 as hot
anything above 70 at night as hot

In winter, I consider anything below 10 as cold in the daytime
anything below -20 as cold at night


I consider today very cold cuz its 19 and October
If these same temps ( and fresh snow) greeted me on a winter morning, I'd consider it quite mild.

If most English people are like you ( anything below 45f is freezing) I would say it is not only heat they are intolerant to but they have very little tolerance for cold also .

It really depends on the season. Plus humidity is the key factor. For example, 85° and humid is just downright hot and uncomfortable. But if the air was dryer, it wouldn't be so bad. And 65° in July would feel cool, but 65° in January would be warm.

Blazing: 100°+
Hot: 90°-100°
Warm: 66°-90°
Cool: 40°-65°
Cold: 20°-39°
Frigid: Anything below 20°, especially with wind.
