Blah, Celsius is obviously more natural:

-50 Ok, this is what I'd call _REALLY_ cold
-40 With proper gear it's survivable but not much fun
-30 Time to put on a fur hat
-20 Long underwear is a good idea
-15 Nice winter day
-10 Slightly warm winter day
-5 Nice warm winter day
0 Slippery as hell outside, beware!
5 Cool summer day
10 Slightly cool summer day
15 Nice summer day
20 Very nice summer day
30 Better apply some sunscreen/take some water with you when going outside
40 With sunblock & lots of water it's survivable but not much fun
50 WAY too hot!!!
