How hot is too hot?
And how much does your answer depend on the region of the country you live in?
The Weather Channel recently reached out to its viewers to see what temperature they considered to be too hot to be able to enjoy being outdoors during the summer months.
Apparently, Louisianans can bear a temperature of around 90 degrees before getting hot under the collar. But for the hardiest souls, you have to look to Arizona and Nevada, whose residents can stand the 90s, but overheat at 100.
Below is a state-by-state list of the temperature threshold for what was considered too hot in the Lower 48 states, according to the survey results:
• 100 degrees: Arizona, Nevada
