The Climate In The Desert

     To start off with, I would like to say that there are 4 different types of deserts. There are the hot and dry desert, the semiarid desert, the coastal desert, and the cold desert. 

The Hot Desert 

     This desert's average temperature ranges from 64 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit.  The extreme temperature is 110.3 to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. The sand's average temperature is 64 degrees Fahrenheit. The winter brings a little rainfall, but the summers are hot and dry. The average rainfall is about one inch of rain. The soil is rocky and shallow. 
The Semiarid Desert    
The semiarid desert's average temperature in the summer is 110.3 to 80.6 degrees Fahrenheit. Normally the temperature doesn't go above 100 though. In the summer nights the temperatures don;t go over 50 degrees. The average rainfall per year is 2-4 centimeters. The soil here can range from soil to rocky. 

The Coastal Desert
This desert ranges from moderately cool to warm. In the coastal desert the summer temperatures range from 55 to 72.7 degrees Fahrenheit. In the winter the thermometer will not go above 41 degrees. The average rainfall of this particular type of desert is 8-13 centimeters. The soil here is smooth and can run through your hands.

The Cold Desert   
This desert is the opposite of the hot and dry desert, They have cold winters with a lot of snow. In fact, they normally get 5 to 10 inches of snow in the winter. In the winter the average temperature is 28 to 39 degrees Fahrenheit. In the summer this cold desert can get up to 78 degrees.
