The last coldsnap you would see cold debuff immediately after landing in providence and you would soon freeze. Now my alt in just priest robes is forcibly logged in for more than 24 hours and is not freezing yet. So no, now it is not harsh at all, even for newbies, unless someone decides to undress. If it is indeed dependent on altitude now then it's great.

It still does appear instantly,but it ticks down steadily enough to allow you 20-30 mins or so to "work" before you need to port to town and warm up in the barn,it's doable but not "easy" for a totally new player starting out,as previously stated I don't think that part of the mechanic needs adjusting really. Just perhaps to inform more adequately the new player on the mechanic and how to deal with it,I shouldn't have to point out that LOTS of us tend to want to "jump right in and play" and don't go sifting the wiki until we hit something we dont understand or cant figure out on our own.

It was said when it was released that winter temperatures will vary. That is why JC threw us into the coldest possible coldsnap that first time. To test our wills.

Standing there since yesterday, Priestly robes only. No cold debuff.

Besides, I checked temperature in a few places, it is 47 F in Providence and -3 F on snow. Not dependent on altitude, only on biome. (but snow is high, on mountain tops).

Again, IMHO it is OK now, even quite easy, no need to whine anymore.
