I thought Las Vegas was hot until I went to Palm Springs this summer. On the way to L.A., I was able to catch a translator station for the Phoenix NPR station. They were describing the temperature as 97 F in Flagstaff and 110-115 F in Phoenix. After experiencing the heat in Palm Springs, my instincts told me not to venture further east on the 10 to Phoenix and to go back to L.A. or at least San Diego.

Any differing opinions?

Phoenix is the hottest of those three cities. However, El Centro, CA, Death Valley, and the towns along the lower Colorado River (Laughlin, Yuma, etc) are even hotter than Phoenix.

Palm Springs can beat the other two on many days. It's unbearable.
