Nowhere in Georgia even comes close to any of these places in the west, even though their state-wide average temperature is higher. Granted, none of these places has anywhere near the humidity of the east and southeast. It gets oppressively hot in Georgia...and also lots of other places.

Also, the northern part of the state gets some really cold and snowy weather. There are also a lot of mountain ranges surrounding the desert areas (where I live). So, Arizona's average temp won't be as high as expected (although not sure how they calculate the average). On a "highest temp ever recorded" list, I assume Arizona would be only topped by Death Valley in California. This past summer has been HOT.

rocky mountains running down the middle of the state gives us some very cold areas that spoil the average.

I feel like Arizona should be farther up. I know it is a dessert but it is different to say dry hot and humidity. Arizona is very very hot during summers, autumns, and sometimes even winters.

Normally Utah is extremely cold but in the winter for 2020 and 2021 we had about 5 snows and it melted within a hour from when it snowed so Utah is extremely hot and dry so summer is going to be a pain.

I know it's not the hottest but it's pretty hot in MN right now. We're on a streak of 90s and it even got to 100 the other day. Our winters are freezing cold and our summers tend to be pretty hot
