Climate:Although desert climates vary from very hot to very cold, they are always arid (dry), this is due to the lack of a constant percipitation. In many locations featuring a hot desert climate, temperatures of 105°F to 110°F are not uncommon in summer. The absence of vegetation exposes the aridisol soil to the sun, causing temperatures to possibly reach 170°. During colder periods of the year, night-time temperatures can drop to freezing or below due to the lack of cloud cover, allowing heat to escape. However, very rarely do temperatures drop below freezing. To sum it all up, during the day the climates are hot and arid, while nights can be freezing cold.
