What is the average temperature in the Mojave Desert in October?
Damn hot (and potentially windy) in the day and damn cold at night. Pack accordingly. The average daytime temperature is 75 and the low at night is 55. That said, you are responsible for preparing for blistering hot sun, extreme wind and even rain. The desert in fall is a beautiful and unpredictable place.
