Sunnyest cities

World Meteorological Center (WMO) deals with providing information about the weather and the weather around the planet. Every year, WMO draws the ranking of the sunniest cities in the world, that is, the urban centers in which the sun shines for the greatest number of hours during the day.
For the 2016, the primacy was given to Phoenix, the capital and main center of Arizona, in the United States. A city with a predominantly desert climate, characterized by few rains and rather high temperatures for most of the year (in July, the hottest month, the peak of over 40 degrees is reached). Phoenix wins the queen city scepter because sunny for about 90% of the day !!

It is also emphasized how the sun, and the good weather in general, have a positive influence on people's mood: it is not by chance that there has been an extraordinary demographic increase over the years, especially by the people of the third Age. Obviously, the discourse is also valid in reverse: the rain, for example, seems to make people more grumpy and unhappy!

Darwin, in Australia, is placed on the second step of this special ranking. Capital city and center of greatest appeal of the Northern Territory, it boasts a predominantly sunny climate, with average temperatures of 32 degrees.
Follows Niwza, a city of Oman, as well as historical capital, with just under 80000 inhabitants; predominantly sunny city, where clouds and rains are considered more unique than rare events.
The capital and most populous city of Jordan, Amman, is placed in fourth position; situated on a plateau, it enjoys a Mediterranean climate and the presence of the sun even during the winter months with the occurrence of more rigid temperatures.
Fifth ranked among the sunniest cities, the South African Johannesburg, city "kissed by the sun" practically throughout the year; it has a subtropical climate characterized by a mild and sunny winter and a pleasantly warm and ... Sunny day.

So you have chosen your .... Placed in the sun?
