Weather & Climate

Death Valley is known as the hottest, driest and lowest place in North America. The higher elevations are cooler than the lower valley floor. Temperatures drop 3° to 5° F with every gain of 1,000 vertical feet. Sunny skies are the norm in Death Valley, but winter storms and summer monsoons can bring cloud cover and rain. Wind is common in the desert, especially in the spring. VBT tours to the valley run during the spring and fall months, when daytime temperatures are comfortable. And the sunshine is almost guaranteed!
