Not feeling the cold in the morning.

I was wondering if there is a scientific reason why it never seems as cold in the morning, as at night. I don't have central heating, so the house is cold in the morning, about 6C by the thermometer this morning, but it doesn't feel cold enough to turn any heating on.
Yet in the evening, although the thermometer reading is usually higher, it feels colder and I need the heater on. Just wondered why it isn't noticeable in the morning.

Its strange how extreme cold was always classed as a killer, yet nowadays it can be a lifesaver. From extreme cold experiences of Argentinian casualties learned from the Falklands war, lives are being saved nowadays with seriously injured casualties in places like Afghanistan. Reducing body and blood temperatures suddenly under controlled conditions, can and does save lives.
If you want to look into how the body and mind works regarding temperature warnings, then perhaps ask yourself why people tend to 'strip-off', when hypothermia sets in!.
