Does it rain in the desert?

Deserts are the driest places on Earth, but that doesn’t mean that they never experience rainfall. The average annual rainfall in all deserts combined is 250 mm. For comparison, in Poland it is approximately 600 mm.

However, in some places, the yearly rainfall is much lower – in the driest place on Earth, Death Valley in California (USA), it is only 50 mm. On the other hand, in some parts of the Atacama Desert in northern Chile in South America, no rainfall has been recorded since measurements began.
