Dharhan has a hot desert climate, featuring summers among the hottest and most humid in the world, and virtually frost free winter.
the city experiences more than 50 days per year of deadly heat threshold (defined by a: Tx> 42 C, RH> 67% dew pointt> = 35 C), particularly between June and September, and usually, the city is uninhabited and not liveable in July and August

every year, during the summer, the people of the dharhan region take refuge in the mountains or in caves dug to cope with the repeated deadly heat waves or sandstorm. Those who can afford it just go abroad tho; they come back the rest of the year when the city is then a popular seaside destination

Not sure if you're asking to rate today's climate (D) or projected 2100 climate (a solid Z). I think it would regularly exceed 50C / 120F in the summer months by then which of course, is absolutely uninhabitable

Dhahran is on the Persian Gulf, so that would temper summer max's (though minimums would certainly increase still); generally, only inland desert cities see average highs over 45°C. Though there are exceptions like Kuwait City and Ahvaz

E-/E+ tops from me, I really dislike desert and steppe climate zones, so this sums it up.

It's not normal that it happens with predictions in this forum, but this might be actually underestimating the temperatures they're going to have in 100 Years.
