I'm down to my 'T' shirt, shorts and flip-flops at 40F!

Seriously though, you can protect yourself down to -50C with appropriate clothing. There's no appropriate clothing to protect yourself against +50C. I'm guessing, but I suspect that a day out in +50C will kill you, because you're unlikely to be able to drink enough and sweat to keep the body temperature down.
