Reasons why desert nights are cold

Desert temperatures can drop from 38 degrees Celsius during the day to less than minus 4 degrees Celsius at night. Deserts and arid regions cover about 35% of the earth, and the reason it is so hot during the day and so cold at night is a combination of two key factors: sand and moisture.

According to a 2008 report by NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, sand does not retain heat well, and when heat and sunlight hit the sandy desert, the upper layers of sand absorb heat and return it to the air. Therefore, this reflection of heat from the surface of the desert sands will greatly heat the air of the day.

As the sun sets, this heat radiation from the surface of the sand will decrease and as a result, the space will cool down. On the other hand, humidity and the amount of water vapor in the air will be an important factor in the sharp decrease in temperature on desert nights.
