This is the most ridiculous list I've seen that wasn't on Cracked. One is a gas stop, One is a scientific research station, another has clouds(apparetly clouds="miserable"), another one is not hot enough, and another actually cools off at night. God forbid the heat disappears when the sun goes down.

Enjoy your shitty nights that don't go below 100° and your mornings that are climbing above 105° before 6am. Enjoy your heat island that blows storms off course, yet bring the humidity (113°+50% humidity comes up with a heat index of about 164°),and enjoy that for about 6 weeks in the hottest part of summer.

Next time pull a list if places that are actually both miserable and cities, quit trying to pass this off on your readers.

I am from buffalo, have lived in Phoenix for two years and we are moving back in September. There is no way buffalo is worse than Phoenix. I would take 80 degrees with 100% humidity over 110 any day!!

This list is pretty stupid in general...Death Valley and Antarctica are "cities"? I agree with Florida and Houston (but duh)...everything else is just dumb. :/

Buffalo is not that bad. Plus, there's so much to do there in the summer that it takes your mind off of the humidity!

Are you kidding me putting sf on this list its closer to high sixties depending on the part of the city you live in. Even if it is sixty one it is way better than 110.

I'm from Houston. It will always be home, but I do not miss 100+ degree temps with 100% humidity and mosquitoes the size of small aircraft. I'll take Phoenix in the summer everyday for the rest of my life.

Didn't need to go past Buffalo to know how Derp this article is. Moved here from there 9 years ago, and every damn year I wish I was back there right about... now.

I lived in Buffalo for a couple years (grew up in Syracuse), and while I absolutely made the right decision in moving here, for four month every year I would love to live back there.

I can only conclude that you've never actually been there in the summer, and just needed filler, so you went with an easy cheap shot. That's basic, brah.

It is a dry heat. When it rains, it rains dirt.

It's cloudy every day in June in Buffalo? Sounds good to me. Average summer high in San Francisco is 61? Perfect! North Dakota has lows in the 40's in July? Road trip!

Baghdad in July. Nuff said. Other then Jbad. Then you just add humidity.

No clue what this author is talking about. In Buffalo, for virtually the entire month of June, it was mostly sunny with high temps in the 70s/80s, lows in the 50s/60s. Moderate humidity, a frequent cool breeze, and couple days of rain. It's the same pattern so far in July—which is typical. Summers here are the Elysian Fields.

I've been to Death Valley in the summer and it's hell, but one of the worst places in the summer is St Louis, Mo - so hot and muggy - really surprised me.

I can cross so many of those off the list for touting clouds, rain, and cooler temperatures as being more miserable than walking in an oven. Article denied!

That is a slap in the face! Death Valley and Antartica!

All 7 circles of hell couldn't be this bad. Y go to church to avoid hell when you're already living in it?

None of these cities are worse than Phoenix. No city is worse than Phoenix weather-wise. Except maybe Pensacola. But I'd rather be there, honestly. Also, why is precipitation so bad?

Did you guys not see that this article was written by Matthew Hendley? The wannabe journalist who only regurgitates police reports and makes worthless top ten lists. Of course, this list is stupid. It's written by the slow kid who doesn't realize he is slow.

if you can't find ten spots without including death valley and antarctica, then i'd say our complaints are legit and we're not just whining

Antarctica made the list? And Death Valley? We don't need a crappy opinion to tell us that..

@Mikey1969 Uh yeah, it's nowhere close to 50% humidity when it's 113.  And for 6 weeks?  Straight out your ass, guy.

No exaggeration there.  5th biggest city in the country also happens to be its armpit?  Incredible that people are still moving here.  How fast is Concord, CA growing?  Forget Detroit, Cleveland, cities in the South or Montana or the Dakotas... Phoenix is THE armpit.  Ever heard of Scottsdale?  I know, I know, Scottsdale's not Phoenix.  It's just immediately adjacent.

@fireant333 Except for during Monsoon season, you stupid ass.


Which is exactly when I saw this. You see, the Monsoons come into town, and whether or not they dump and rain, the humidity shoots right up. Trying to find the specific date, I found quite a few days where this happened, but I also discovered Aug 14, '12 as an example. High of 113, humidity of 58%. That equals a heat index temp of 181 degrees.

Hell, the 21st hit only 102, but the humidity reached 88%. That gives you a heat index of 184 degrees, which follows what I stated, so eat a dick.

@Mikey1969 And what about your "for 6 weeks" assertion, you f'n moron?  Way to gloss over that...  Oh cool you found one date where it hit a billion degrees at one point in the day and 100% humidity in another... Good attempt (for a 5th-grader) to twist the stats to your own dumbassed purposes, but like I said, straight out your ass, and you even admit in your writing, basically,  "It hit this temp and it also hit this humidity that day." 

Mikey1969
Mikey1969

@fireant333 Jesus, you're dense... The 113 degrees/50% humidity was an example of how nasty it can get, and the 6 weeks was about how long the monsoons actually last. There were multiple days in that list with high humidity and high temps. Not just one. Sorry that I didn't hold your hand, and you took it as a LITERAL statement of "163 heat index for 6 straight weeks".


I'm not sure why you're feelings are so hurt about that dirty shithole anyway. The city is a pit.
