    "Hot" is hotter than "warm".

    "Warm" is warmer than "cold".

    I would offer that "hot" is beyond the temperature that you can touch it continuously.

    "Warm" is comfortable to touch.

    Cold - Cool - Warm - Hot

    This is the order of things.

    You can touch and hold a warm object. A hot object will cause burns of varying degrees.
