Synonyms of "Cold" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between The bitter cold temperatures recorded during the Showa Era have returned. and The bitterly cold temperatures recorded during the Showa Era have returned. ?
A: Actually, “An adverb is a word that modifies a verb, adjective, another adverb, determiner, noun phrase, clause, or sentence.”

In this case “cold” in “cold weather” is an adjective and can be modified by the adverb “bitterly.” I’d say that the second sentence is correct.

As for the first sentence, you could add a comma: The bitter, cold temperatures... and have “bitter” as an additional modifier of “temperature” along with “cold.”

Or drop “temperatures” in which case “cold” becomes a noun and “bitterly” wouldn’t work anymore.
Q: What is the difference between "cold" and "cool" ?
A: depends on context.. if the weather outside was 40ºC yesteray... and it drops to 32ºC today.. it's still pretty damn hot but you could say "It's cooler today that yesterday." It's less than where you were.

Colder: if 1) the drop in temperature is great enough for you to actually feel cold i.e. it's not pleasant... then you can say.. it's colder today.. / it's getting colder... winter's coming... blah blah
Q: What is the difference between much too cold and far too cold ?

Q: What is the difference between cold and flu ?
A: A cold is normally when you are slightly sick with sore throat, coughing, and a runny nose. You would normally still go to work with a cold. A flu is slightly more serious and you feel very tired, sometimes vomit. If you had the flu you wouldn't go to work.
Q: What is the difference between It's quite cold and It's fairly cold ?
A: It's cold means it is cold.
It's fairly cold means it is reasonably cold (warmer than just being cold).

B: They have a cold.

A: Missed you at church yesterday. Is everything ok?
B: Yeah, we're fine, thank you. I was home with the kids; they have colds.
Q: It’s cold and pouring out here. does this sound natural?
A: "It's cold and pouring in here" or "It's cold and pouring out there" are better. 'Out' and 'here' seem contradict in this case.
Q: It’s cold today, the temperature is 8 degrees here now. does this sound natural?
A: Your sentence makes sense, but it would be more natural to say "It's 8 degrees outside"
Q: I've caught a bad cold on the day I left home and it has been one month since then I'm still not well yet. does this sound natural?
A: I think the sentence sounds unnatural because you are saying two main ideas in only one sentence. It is more natural to break it up and say one main idea per sentence:

-- I caught a bad cold on the day I left home. It has been one month since then but I'm still not well yet.
