I made an extreme version of a Hot desert climate (BWh). The place is located on latitude 18.39N. I want you to rate it on how close it is to world extremes or if it surpasses them, not on how liveable it is.

I rate this place as A. It’s beats other places in the world in summer heat, sunshine hours and low relative humidity but there are some other places with higher average annual temperature

*pukes*.

I give this a solid X---.

This seems to be a near nightmare. I hate 119 F even with dry heat. But that logs to a heat index of 123 F is still a piece of ++++. Its too hot, too dry, and too sunny. Yuck! . Also, Please give me Vostok Station during any day of the year over this hot arid garbage.

WOAH WOAH WOAH! Are you that hardcore at heat loving. . Do you really want some 119 F in the depths of heat in July, You could probably go for a nice swim in the winter in that same climate. That could be a great place for A/C year round.

This has the winters of Mecca, Saudi Arabia and the summers of Death Valley, USA. Idk where in the world a desert climate with those temperature averages could emerge, but it's an interesting thought experiment.

Interesting climate. It would be unliveable, but it is warmer than Death Valley in the summer and would be the hottest summers by average in the world. Death Valley's record high is either 134 F / 57 C or 129 F / 54 C

Because it appears to be tropical or nearly so and has a smaller diurnal range than Death Valley, the records may be closer to the averages especially in winter, spring, and fall; for instance, it wouldn't surprise me if this fictional climate had a record high in January around 100 F / 38 C, similar to Mecca's actual record.

I would say this climate could easily beat that 129 record but 134 would be more difficult. Nevertheless, I think if this climate had a similarly long period of record as Death Valley, it's record high would be 132-136 F / 56-58 C.

Actually the question says that rate on its ability to beat other hot places in terms of temperature not in terms of liveability. In terms of liveability it gets solid X- but in terms of beating other places it gets A.

Oh, okay then. It might be inhabited but they need some special A/C year round in that desert climate. You’re just saying it’s better than any other hot place?
