Good gosh, what a hellish place - I can't imagine anyone living there in that kind of heat, especially when you consider that very few of that city's residents have AC....gaa!

Huge "F" on this one.

FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFFF...

Seriously, I don't know how people manage there and places like Baghdad with presumably no aircon. This place is even worse with a complete lack of winter. Also, the metro population seems to have gone up four times in 25 years, how hellish must it be living there re. infrastructure, particularly water? Back to the climate, even January would be too hot for me and 3731 sun hours would bore me to death, particularly the certainty of sunny days for half the year. I'm a little dubious about the sun figures - 341 hours in December is 10.3 or so a day, would that not be virtually identical to the amount of daylight hours at 15N, i.e. sunny all day, every day, every year? How can the sun hours be more than in March-April with longer days and equally dry conditions?

C+, but only if I could have aircon. The sunshine values have obviously been calculated from a crudely rounded whole hrs/day and even if the original roundings are from correct values, a total calculated this way could be up to about 15 hours too high.
