That would make it TOTALLY seasonless as you'd want their average winters to last year round. Due to the aridity, it has a high diurnal range so don't you find the winter nights colder than ideal? If the year round average was a daytime high of 90 F and a nighttime low of 60 F with occasional 40s F, would you choose Singapore for warmer nights?

Do you think you'd eventually get tired of the total dryness and crave some rain? Would you rate Sunburnt's winters lasting year round a better climate than Honolulu (your other A+ climate)?

Winter nights would be slightly cooler than ideal... Ideally, I'd like winter nights to be around 68-70F. To me, the more seasonless a climate is the better as I don't like climates with a lot of temperature variation throughout the year. That is one of the things that appeals to me about tropical and very oceanic climates. The exception of course being tropical alpine tundra climates like La Paz or extreme tundra oceanic climates like Macquarie Island but as long as temperatures don't fluctuate much during the year and trees can grow, I will rate it at least a C+. For climates where all months average Koppen's threshold of 64.4F average or more automatically get an A from me.

Would I get tired of the total dryness in this climate? Not likely as long as 1) I had a constant and secure water supply and didn't have to worry about water shortages and 2) There was enough water to go around to irrigate at least some of the gardens in the city to add a bit of greenery. If Sunburnt had a seasonless climate that averaged January's weather all year round, I would rate it higher than Honolulu, Singapore and Miami.

I think it's just the perfect climate for me. It's always hot, sunny and dry. Why isn't there a such climate on the planet? That's a shame. I give A+ for this.
No clouds, no rainfall ad no cold = perfect weather all year-long.

You're such an extreme heat lover that I think you might actually like my other fictional even hotter climate with a record high of 189 F; it also has a brief 6 week monsoon with thunderstorms but their winters are probably a little too cold for you.
