The climate of Salton Sea (California - United States of America)
The Salton Sea is a salt water lake located in the southeastern part of California. The New River, Alomo River and the Whitewater River all flow into this lake. The salt content of this lake is higher than that of the Pacific Ocean. The lake is this salty because of the salt and minerals in the soil. Around the Salton Sea several mud volcanoes can be found. This phenomenon is caused by mud and gas being ejected by underground reservoirs. The region surrounding the Salton Sea is home to many birds, among them are pelicans. Hardly any fish species occur in the lake because it is simply too salt for fish.
During the summer temperatures often rise above 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit). From the end of October till the second part of April it is cooler here. Just like Imperial Valley the Salton Sea can record the highest amount of hours of sunshine in the United States. Even during the winter there is more than 8 hoursí sunshine per day. The lowest temperature on record is -8 degrees Celsius (17.6 degrees Fahrenheit). The highest temperature on record is 49 degrees Celsius (120 degrees Fahrenheit).

Climate figures are very useful but donít present a general impression of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain period. The figures donít always reflect the chance of wintry weather, extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate information for each month of the year:
