This is a depression in the southwest of Sunland, about 80km from the nearest coast. It lies far enough south that it escapes most of the monsoon and therefore is a desert climate. The valley is surrounded by mountains (which puts it in a rain shadow) and lies 110m below sea level. Although it is a desert, it is still quite humid, as the oceanic influence of the 31C SSTs surrounding Sunland in summer is present. Infact, the straight between the southern coast of Sunland and the Pilbara coast of Australia is one of the warmest seas in the world.

F. Way too hot and sunny for me in perpetuity, with no redeeming characteristics. However I will say the winter record low is impressive considering the averages.

F from me.

IF summers were cooler and it was much wetter I'd rate it higher, maybe an E+/D- (keeping the winters the same)

Winter looks great (despite the huge diurnal variation) but the rest of the year is absurdly hot. Sorry, but I have to give it a D-.

C. Way to hot and dry...don't like the high winter diurnal variation either. Looks like it's open to fronts too...

Too hot with no real cool season makes it very oppressive for me. Not a fan of arid climates either.

It looks a lot like a slightly more extreme version of Marble Bar.

I don't hate it and I do certainly appreciate those sunshine totals and temps from April to September. The rest is quite too hot, though fully manageable with A/C.

B+ negatives are summers are too hot (even for me) and winter nights are too cool...

D only because "winters" are rather nice. The rest of the year is awful.
