Yes, it is hot. However the humidity is nowhere near as high as you find along the Gulf Coast. I doubt if that region sees humidity in the 90% range. I could be wrong but I don't think so. I've spent time in the Persian Gulf region and can tell you from my own experience that 100+ degrees doesn't feel that way. When you hear "it's the humidity not the heat", that's true. Check the weather in that region for summer humidity range or maybe someone from that area could toss in their 2c.

I've been to Phoenix quite a few times in the summer and although it does get hot, it is still a great place.

It gets 110 here with humidity. I would happily trade that for 120 with no humidity.

I agree with this statement 100%.

Once it breaks 100 I've found 110 is not that bad. If it's dry heat it can be oddly pleasant.

In a dry heat the sweat evaporating from your skin has a cooling effect. Next time you're in a dry heat (not Texas) take an unopened container of your favorite beverage, wrap it on a damp towel and let it set in shade until the towel is dry. Surprise!
