A lot of people that like warm/hot weather (I am one example) would find some of the months in this weather climate to be a little bit too hot.

A lot of people that like warm/hot weather like temperatures in the 70/80s/90s but not the 100s such as 105 degrees and higher.

Also, there are plenty of people that like warm/hot weather but still like temperature and seasonal variation and sometimes like cooler temperatures.

Overall, I give Khartoumm Sudan's weather climate a C.

Too hot from April to October and too dry. I like the temperatures November to March but I rather have those temperatures in November to March to happen in May to September. Also I like a lot of sunshine but I like a lot of precipitation. This climate has way too little precipitation for me.

LOL, I thought you might downgrade it for "chilly" winter lows.

I give it an 'F', but it at least has a pleasant January.

A downright F... Absolute hell! How depressing!
BTW, have you noticed in that picture that most vehicles seem to be white? It seems that in hot places, not only clothes, but vehicles are light-colored... it may be because the color white reflects the sunlight away? Or am I just confusing things?

I...think I would actually kill myself if I had to live there. There isn't a low enough letter in the alphabet for me to vote on this.

You may be right about the color unless it has some religious significance.
Women on the other hand wear black burqas and are covered head to toe. Now THAT is torture!

I think even the most hardcore heat and sun lovers would hate this climate. I'm liking the sun, and the lack of rain, and the winter (Dec to Feb) temperatures are tolerable. Other than that, it's way too hot, and this is coming from me, a heat lover. I'd give it a C- (or D+). Maybe a C if I can have a car and an AC (and utilities included in the place I live).

I think you underestimate heat lovers. One in particular thought Marble Bar is the best place in Australia. It is only marginally cooler than Khartoum. Click on the first page of the "dream climate" thread (a little down below) to get an idea.

And ColdCanadian thought of a climate somewhere in Ethiopia but that was 2 kilometers below sea level!

The only positive thing is low humidity. Other than that, it's hell on Earth. Personally, I'd rather live on an ice floe than Khartoum.

Nowhere on the surface of the planet is 2km below sea level. The Danakil Depression is 155m below sea level, and on average is the hottest place on Earth.

Mid-winter temperatures average 90/80, and mid-summer averages 115/95.
