During your snowstorms, here in Arizona, we had an average of 68F for the high. But our summers break 110F. I have a feeling that is hotter than in Brisbane.

What sort of humidity do you get in Arizona? I'm guessing it's probably close to the humidity in Vegas - that is, not present. We may only hit the mid-20'sC here in Auckland, but the constant 80%+ humidity makes it feel much, much higher.

Example: It is currently 0430 here, 19C, but the 93% humidity is pushing that up to 21C. And that's with some light wind.

93% humidity.
At 0430.

This is why I sleep with a fan constantly blowing on my face.

20sC is not bad.  NYC gets in the upper 20s-low 30sC with some disgusting humidity.  Makes Vegas' 35C feel quite cool.  Arizona's northern mountains are bloody nice, climate wise.

Yeah, but for 0430? Tongue

One of the big differences with Auckland is that it isn't a 'flat' city like NY or Vegas. We have hills. Lots of hills. Just about everywhere you need to go involves walking up, or down, to some degree. Oh, and air-conditioning is pretty rare here, too. One of these days we'll figure that one out.

Anyways, when I first saw the title of this thread I actually thought of Michigan....

Our humidity in general rarely breaks 25% but we have had it up to 80% once or twice during August in ou monsoon season. Of course, this offset by the rain that goes on for a day or two and cools things down a bit. It is the mugginess of the very next day that will kill you at that time. The Phoenix area is surrounded by mountains and flat land. We're a desert because we get less than 5" of rain annually. We soak up the rain fairly well but people still forget how to drive in it.

It's currently 5.13am, and it's 26c and 95% humidity [it's been this temp all night].  Yesterday it got to 35c and 95% humidity.  I'd kill for some snow.

i think our climate is very similar to what the Aussie's have, i am guessing you live in the northern areas then. we will ususally see around mid to upper 90f here in the summer and usually does not drop below 40f in the winters. high humidity and little rain.
