The wettest desert is the Sonoran Desert which covers parts of Arizona and California, USA, as well as parts of the states of Baja California and Sonora in Mexico. Daytime temperatures here may exceed 40ºC (104ºF) in summer and annual rainfall varies as much as 76 to 500 millimetres (2.9–19.6 inches) across different regions of the desert. The Sonoran Desert is unusual in that it experiences a bimodal rainfall pattern (i.e., two wet seasons): one from December to March, and a second from July to September.
