    a little too hot?

    Hi.

    I need your help.

    a little = a small amout,

    too = more than ~


    a little too?
    ----

    for example, "It's a little too hot for comfort."

    What does a little too mean in the above?

    Re: a little too hot?

    It is too hot, but only by a small amount.

    It was a little too chilly to go out in only my short sleeves, but with a light sweater, it was perfect.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
