We're at that point of the year where some people won't stop complaining about the heat until October.
Believe it or not, there are plenty of places where the summer season is much more miserable than it is in Phoenix. Check out 10 prime examples:
10.) Buffalo, New York
In the month of June, every single day was cloudy in Buffalo, according to the Weather Channel.
It's not exactly an urban area, but it holds the record for hottest temperature ever recorded.

Sure, Phoenix's heat can suck. Phoenix and Doha tend to have similar temperature ranges, but Doha tends to be much more humid.
