Dew Point in Dubai in the summer can reach 30-35C dew point in Brisbane reach (23-25C) (Weather Undeground)

Heat index in dubai can reach 150F (65C) or more , heat index in Brisbane didn't get over 120F (49C) !

Dubai is probably the most hot and humid city in the world with other arabian gulf city.

The hottest heat index ever recorded in the world was 172F (78C) at Dhahran, Saudi Arabia on 2003-07-08.

In my opinion Dubai is obviously more humid than Brisbane in the summer.

No offence, but this thread is completely pointless. You've answered your own question, and the answer was pretty obvious anyway.

Brisbane and Dubai are at complete opposite ends of the scale when it comes to heat and humidity.

If you can't moan about London, I guess you go after Brisbane instead.

It's next to the coast. Same reason why Mediterranean climates are very humid but almost totally dry in summer.

It's not only the proximity to the coast. Kuwait City is near the coast too, but it is extremely dry. It is a matter of wind patterns: they usually blow from a southerly/southwesterly direction and that means all the areas north or easth of the sea (southern Iran, United Arab Emirates, western Arabian coast, but also Bahrein and Qatar) are very humid while the areas west or north of the sea (Kuwait, eastern Arabian coast, Kuzestan) are extremely hot and dry.
This is the usual situation, regardless of local peculiarities; for example, Dhahran is usually very dry given its location on the Persian Gulf on the Arabian coast, but sometimes the wind blows from the "wrong" direction and the humidity raises up to extraordinary levels while the temperatures doesn't have the "time" to sufficiently decrease and that brings record heat indexes. This phenomenon usually lasts no more than a couple of days.

It's up coming to the ocean. Same reason why Mediterranean and beyond environments are very moist but almost completely dry in summer months.

Dubai's humidity is nothing compared to Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Central Africa.

It still gets dry searing heat. Brisbane also doesn't get that dry.

This thread is a complete and utter fail. Dubai is obviously more humid than a gazillion other places too.
