Which would you choose?
I think I'd go for Delhi in this case... warmer record lows and overall greener.

Neither? I'll go for the place whose monthly highs are less than 100°F if I have to. With this heat, I'll don't care about aridity; just which ever place has more tolerable summers.

Delhi has 6 months I'd consider too hot; Monterrey 3.

A case of damned if you do damned if you don't.

Monterrey by a narrow margin, even though the cooler winters of Delhi look delightfully refreshing..

Monterrey, though this is like asking me whether I prefer to be kicked in the crotch or punched in the crotch.

Monterrey can actually have some quite cool spells for the cold lovers..
One day in February 2011 had a high of 0°C and a low of -4°C when a strong cold front blew through. Of course 3 days later it was up to 30°C

A bit shocked to see how cool Delhi gets in the winter months…average lows around 45 F! That’s about the same as Long Beach, CA or Daytona Beach, FL. Daily highs are too extreme in Delhi before the burst of the monsoon (April, May, and June)…but then level off to acceptable levels for a Humid Subtropical station. Rainfall and sun hours are pretty good.

Monterrey has a little warmer lows in winter (50 F) and much of the rest of the year is similar to Delhi – though precip is lower.

I would go with Monterrey I guess

Monterrey looks better, but I want sun data.

According to this: Monterrey Climate Information - ClimateTemp.info, Making Sense of Average Monthly Temperature & Weather Data with Detailed Climate Graphs That Portray Average Rainfall & Sunshine Hours

Monterrey gets quite a few less sunshine hours than Delhi

2072 vs. 2688
