Borrego Springs Weather & Climate

Hot summers and pleasant winters characterize the climate of the Sonora Desert of southern California. The terrain of the area varies from 235 feet below sea level at the Salton Sea to 4,500 feet at Blue Angel Peak. The Sonoran Desert is an arid region covering 120,000 square miles and irrigation has produced many fertile agricultural areas, including the Imperial Valley of California. This is the hottest of the North American deserts, where summertime temperatures can climb well over the century mark. The western part of the desert is closer to the source of Pacific storms and is noted for its spring flowers when there is sufficient winter-spring rainfall. Freezing conditions can occur for a few nights in winter, and only rarely do moist air and cool temperatures combine to produce high relative humidity readings.
