The Sahara Desert is hot and arid (dry). The temperature is around 50oC (122oF) in the daytime - it's one of the hottest places on earth. At night it can become very cold - most of the animals living in the Sahara are nocturnal, preferring to come out of their burrows to feed when it is cooler. Sometimes the temperature goes below 60oF (15.55oC).
The climate graph fo the Sahara desert will be very little rainfall but a very high temprature .

Hotter than you think maybe like 30 - 40 degrees on May 5th 2009
