ex) Victor, a private detective, leaned against his window and looked out. ‘Surely no other place on earth is more proud of its beauty than Venice,’ he thought watching its spires and domes. Whistling a tune, Victor walked over to his large mirror. Just the weather for trying out his new disguise, he thought, as the sun warmed the back of his sturdy neck. He had bought this new treasure only the previous day: an enormous mustache, so dark and bushy that it would have made any self‑respecting walrus extremely jealous. He stuck it carefully under his nose and stood on his toes to make himself taller. He became so fascinated by his reflection that he only heard the footsteps on the stairs when they stopped outside his door. ‘Clients. Blast! Why are they bothering me now of all times?’ With a deep sigh he sat behind his desk. He heard voices whispering outside his door.

He stood in the room and the sunlight coming through the window was making his sturdy neck warm and as he stood there he thought that it was the perfect weather to test out his new disguise.
I'm not quite sure why the weather needed to be sunny in order to be the perfect weather to test out his new disguise (the big moustache). The only thing I can think is that he probably didn't want to get his fake moustache wet in case it slid off his face!
