# How is someone suppose to know whether it’s going to be 60°F and cold or 60°F and warm?

The weather channel website wouldn’t say whether it’s going to be 60°F and cold or 60°F and warm all it would say is that it’s 60°F and cloudy, rainy sunny, windy, etc but the only thing it wouldn’t say is that it’s 60°F and cold or 60°F and warm.

You may need to explain better what you mean:

60F is always 60F. the temperature is the same whether you add the words "hot", "cold", "super hot", "unbearable" etc to the end.

Maybe youre thinking of windchill? If so you can calculate the wind chill with a formula if it is not provided by the weather provider. Here is a link explaining wind chill. Wind chill only affects the perceived temperature by humans, it doesnt affect the actual outside air temperature.

Another thing is humidity, this would be given as another parameter, but humidity is separate from temperature, although they are related

Being 'warm' or 'cold' is subjective, being 60ºF is objective.

You're either European or 6, then. People who grow up under the Fahrenheit system know exactly what that temperature means and how they would respond to it.
