Monterrey is far better, though it's still a solid F+ in my book. BWh climates qualify as "Worse than hell".

If Monterrey is really that cloudy, then I'll change my preference to Alice Springs.

My favourite source gives Monterrey only 1932 hours. Alice all the way.

I'll go with Alice Springs as it has a semblance of a winter believe it or not being nearly 600 m ASL, although it can reach 30C at any time of the year. Of course, both are way too hot most of the time but at least the heat in Alice is almost always dry (save for rare NW cloud bands in summer but then heat is mitigated and the desert blooms afterward).

Monterrey for me.

Prefer the higher rainfall and the rare chance of snow.

Alice Springs B- (climate sounds like Tucson, but summer record lows in the low 50's much better)
Monterrey F

I'd have to go with Alice Springs. 14'C average DP high vs 23 average DP high... It is sunnier as well, but it's just so dry...

Exactly my thoughts as well. Alice Springs is like a comfier version of Seville, whereas Monterrey is just like a humid extension of the Texas summer hell.

Both are terrible, but Monterrey cooler and has more rain. So Monterrey wins.
