Kuwait City's data is completely wrong, the highest average high is 44.1C in July.

Ahvaz's data looks suspect aswell.

The world's hottest officially measured summers belong to Death Valley, with 46C in the hottest month.

Ahvaz for being only slightly "cooler" and for more precipitation as well.

I spent a year in Kuwait and it was awful. Being right there on the Gulf it has horrible, horrible humidity all the time, but especially during summer. You can walk outside for five minutes and you'll be drenched in sweat. I never want to see average temperatures over 100F again.

Are you confusing strong dry, furnace heat (Baghdad) with moisture-rich heat humidity (Singapore)? They're BOTH uncomfortable...and people confuse those at times...

Judging from the Wiki box, the summer humidity in Kuwait is around 20% - that's exceptionally dry. So I don't see how it's 'horrible humidity'. I'm guessing they're going by 3pm humidity, and maybe the humidity rises in the nights?

Btw, Doha seems very humid (another Gulf city).
