Is/Are there term(s) to describe the threshold at which a person can see their own breath outside ?

With the colder weather coming around (in parts of the northern hemisphere), I was wondering if there's any specific terms or colloquial phrases to more concisely or properly say (in a professional context) 'it's cold enough to see your breath outside now'
(Not looking for things like "chilly" "freezing" "cold as *******"
For what it's worth, the exact temperature at which this happens varies, depending on humidity and the person's body temperature.
Bonus points if there's terms for it in other languages.
