How comfortable a person feels is a function of not just the air temperature, but also the relative humidity and wind speed since these help determine the efficiency of sweating as a means of cooling the body.
But it's also dependent on what you're comparing it to. A person leaving below zero F. temp to go into 50 F. might feel it as nice and warm, while a person going from 90 F to 50 F would feel it as shiveringly cold.
