Optimum Summer Temperature ?

Short and sweet.

For me anything more than 21c and i get uncomfortable.....and a tad grumpy....Belfast.

I remember us all in our swimwear on a beach in Donegal in those temperatures....Italians arrived in their duffle coats !!!

What about the rest of you ?

Anything above 13 is just silly.

In the UK, mid-20's maximum because it's nearly always accompanied by high humidity.
South of France where we used to holiday, mid-high 30's was no problem as it was always 'dry' heat.

You need to specify where?

On the beach needs to be in the low twenties minimum; In the city or working no more than 20 maximum

28+ but does depend on humidity.

Worked in Africa when's its 35+ but low humidity which was nice. But done 20s and high humidity not very nice at all.

Love a bit of sun on my face. Even in the winter on those clear frosty days.

I'm with 15 as being pleasantly warm - 19 is a maximum for me.

For holidays we head North - Iceland or Scandinavia.

My idea of hell is sitting on a beach in temps of 25+ = nightmare.

That said humidity is all important - the lower the humidity the higher the temperature I can stand.

About 25C in the UK is about right for me.

Anything hotter in the UK feels unbearably hot.

I can just hear our European neighbours laughing at some of these replies.
It depends on what you are doing:
If I am sitting by the pool or on the beach, up to 30 degrees is no drama. I live by the sea, so can always get in there if it gets too hot. I went in the sea twice on Saturday.
If I am doing something like going to a gig, or watching cricket, then between 24 and 26 suits me.

Edit - summer means summer. I want to remember that it was hot, not that it was a bit warm.
Similarly in winter, any time the temperature gets above 5 degrees is wrong.

This is England. It's a moderate climate. 19 or 20 degrees is pleasant, anything more is unwelcome and should not be allowed. As for where you are, ronan, surely it should be raining.

In winter I want January and February to be proper cold, down in the minuses night and day most of the time. I love cold weather!

Yes me too, I loved going out in January on a good walk over the Downs when it was about 4 degrees.

I am wondering how motivated I might be to go out on the bike in that weather though.....

Heading to Donegal for a week this Saturday... we've had enough rain this year... I'll take a dry 19 or 20 degrees there in a heartbeat.

Depends what I'm doing.

If I'm in the office and it's 29 degrees, and the heating is still on, and there are lasses complaining they are "ACTUALLY FREEZING", then I'm going to kill everyone.

If I'm sat in the garden reading a book, then 18 to 24 is my range, I think. I can't sit out in extreme heat for long. or I'll kill everyone.

I'm amazed to realise that I'm not unusual. Anything above 20, and if I've got to move at all it's a pain in the harris.

Been sitting in the back garden for last hour under a very cloudy sky feeling very apathetic....and all of a sudden the sun appears....the whole mood is changed....wee house sparrows come out to feed...the music on the radio perks up....life is great.
I get the cushions for the garden sofa out.....joy to the world !!!!

And then after 30 seconds of Utopia...back to apathy....dullness.


Summer weather Irish style.

Lunched at a cross between a derelict shed and a pub on Hove seafront today. There were three of us and it was about 23 degrees. One wanted to sit outside in the sun, one wanted to be inside in the shade, and the sensible one (me) wanted a drink outside and lunch inside.

Is the correct answer.

Also struggling to think of pub on Hove seafront....

Sitting outside requires the following, moderate temperature, no smokers within puffing distance and a clean table and seat. Any signs of bird doings and I'm out of there! My brother-in-law likes to sit outside and watch the world go by at every opportunity, I spoil his fun a lot of the time because I am unbearably miserable if conditions are not met. He has learned its easier to just sit inside

I don't like eating in the sunshine, outside is fine but I have to be in the shade. Is it just me?
