Desert Hot Springs

Summer winds and the higher elevation keep Desert Hot Springs on average 5-7 degrees cooler than other communities in Coachella Valley.: However, the winter season can be warmer due to the surrounding mountains blocking north winds and since it lies at a higher elevation than the cities further south, cold air drains into the lower elevation of the Coachella Valley which results in warmer night-time lows, producing an example of thermal inversion.
