    Iran does have the hottest temperature on earth, but it is not a hot country in general. it does live up to its standards because its close to the equator.
    in tehran, it snows in the winters and so does most of the northern parts of the country. if you want to know how iran’s climate is in different parts of the country.

    Actually, there is a drier region. The Atacama Desert, Chile. It receives 1/100 of an inch of rain a year, on average! This is due to the fact that the Humboldt Current carries all moisture away from the desert, and the fact that it is in the rain shadow of one of the world’s tallest mountain ranges: The Andes at the same time. It would take over 100 years for the rain there to fill a coffee cup.

    THE hottest…place on earth is in Kuwait, sitting on a 747 with no a/c on a 53 c day…just a big metal thermal heat sink with no air movement.There’s also humidity of 80%….Phoenix is a garden spot by comaprison Period. Been there, done that, don’t got the t-shirt!

    The earths core and nuclear temps are great….if you could survive there.

    According to David Attenborugh, the driest place on Earth is Antartica. I think it’s call the Dry Valleys. Some alledge that it hasn’t rained there in 2 millon years. i don’t know whether ot not that’s true or not.

    Also, I read that the Lybian desert recently broke Death Valley’s record for the hottest recorded temparture.
