Both Kabul and Dodoma have low annual rainfall, and therefore are classified as semi-arid climates. Kabul has much higher temperature swings through the year. I have to say that based on the average number of snow days, Kabul is much less snowier than I thought. Which one do you prefer?

Dodoma is a seriously nice climate. One of the best I've seen. Kabul is nice in the warmer half of the year and very sunny but overall too continental for my taste.

Dodoma for not having a cold winter, and for those surprisingly pleasant lows all year round.

Kabul is far too cold in the winter. It's almost a continental climate. Its summers are not bad though (also thanks to the surprisingly pleasant lows). Funny, I thought Kabul had much hot summers (35-37C highs, akin to Tehran). Surprised to see that its summers are a bit cool and relatively brief. Its winters are also much colder than expected. Wow...

I think the near 6,000 foot in elevation has something to do with that.
