It still gets dry searing heat. Brisbane also doesn't get that dry.
How so? 80F dewpoint is outlier in those cities.

What the hell is this thread? As a frequent visitor of Brisbane and a short term resident at one point clearly dubai is more humid. I could tolerate Brisbane but 40°C with 50-60% humidity is something on another level.

Looking at the dew point graphs it looks like Dubai can be both extremely oppresive and reasonably comfortable within the same week. I guess the winds can easily shift from off the Gulf to off the land and vice versa.

Brisbane otoh stays pretty stable within the "humid-to-oppressive" range, rarely becoming comfortable or extremely oppressive.

On average Dubai is significantly more humid, and for a longer period of time. Which is pretty clear being situated on the southern coast of the PG. Dubai is still not nearly as bad as cities like Bandar Abbas, where dp may not drop below 80F for weeks at a time (https://weatherspark.com/history/328...Hormozgan-Iran).

Brisbane's range looks wider than I'd expect compared to a similarly humid southeastern US climate and considering its lower latitude.
