Khartoumm, Sudan reminds me of Palm Springs, California here in the USA. The winters are actually pretty nice. Yet, when May comes in, the heat builds and triple digits rule until early October. I could handle a month or so with highs in the 105 -108 F range…but four months of this might be tough to deal with. The hot season is just way too long and intense.

D+/C – (for Dec/Jan/Feb which are nice to spend a winter).

It was a make-believe climate/location.

D-, only some tolerable minimums at certain times of the year save it from an F.
I reserve the hot "F" for hot and humid places, with virtually every month at or above 25C minimums.
Lol at Wikipedia stating incredulously that unlike other hot and dry places, it has every month above 30C maximums - what do you expect - the place is virtually equatorial!

I've checked the statistics for this city and the weather here is even worse than South Florida! I don't even know who in their right mind would want to live in a place with desert style heat for the whole year?? Truly disgusting!! Khartoumm's weather is so bad it is as bad as the president of North Sudan which means that it is like torture and hell!! Worst climate I have ever seen! F+ and it is too bad there's nothing lower.

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

Actually it was Panama, but similar latitude.
One particular advantage of 2km below sea level is thicker atmosphere and higher oxygen levels; more UV shielding!

Agreed. I would not want to live there if I couldn't wear light colours to work.

I don't hate it.
I dislike a portion of the year...
which is a less-strong emotion than passionate hatred of Canadian winter.

I would rate it equal to Australind; not ideal but not terribly far from ideal.

Their annual average of 37/23 C (99/73 F) is EXACTLY what happened on my most favourite day in Kalbarri, Western Australia.

Imho,
October to April is pretty good.
May is quite hot, but having humidity below 20% saves it from miserable heat indices.
August and September are tolerable.
June and July are "less tolerable."

I'd rather see a morning low of 85 F/30 C with dry heat
than a morning low of 35 F/2 C at any humidity level.

Late november to early march looks very similar to a Perth summer.
