  3. Do differences in temperature of a few degrees change your behavior/clothing?

Like, is it different between 61° and 63°, or would you just think to yourself "Low 60s" and dress accordingly?

In those cases, I'd probably just think "low 60s", but there is a phenomenon in the Pacific Northwest where as we emerge from late winter into early spring, as soon as highs start to peak over the 50s and into the mid 50s, a lot of people start putting shorts back on the table as an option.

I am one of those people.

I think I rapidly adjust to the ambient temperature, and I base my shorts/jacket decisions on deviations from the recent (~5 days) late morning mean.

When we go from 30s to mid-40s in a day, that's a no-jacket kind of day. When we go from teens to 30s in a day, that's a no-jacket day. When we go from 90s to 60s--well that calls for a hoodie, doesn't it?
Willis, it seems like every other time you post, I need to look up a word that's in the OED or Urban Dictionary but not both.

Part of the reason I asked this was when talking about using Celsius vs Fahrenheit, and my friend said she needed the most fine-tuned accuracy of Fahrenheit for day-to-day, and I was like, "Uh, low 60s is low 60s, I don't need that level of precision."

This is obviously complicated by my lack of intuitive familiarity with Celsius, but when I was in Canada, the only weather service I bothered with was doineedajacket.com since the actual ambient temperature was pretty meaningless to me.

But yeah, the difference between 0C and 5C was pretty significant, though I couldn't tell you how significant.

So I ran the numbers through Google and 0C is around 32F and 5C is about 41F and there's a linear(ish) (but not really) relationship from there going up by 5C each time, so I can see why it would make a bigger difference.

Well, it is linear - ever 10°C is 18°F, or 5°C is 9°F. (Thus the conversion formula F = 1.8C + 32.)

When I'm in countries that use Celsius, I just follow this rhyme:

30 is hot
20 is nice
10 needs a jacket
0 is ice
