The Desert Weather Map Update is an update in Adopt Me! that began on January 20, 2022 and returns on the 15th of every month. It brought map changes and the Desert Shop into the game, as well as new toys, pet accessories, vehicles, and pets.
In this update, a new type of weather was introduced to the game; this was the first rotational weather change in Adopt Me!. In this weather change, the main map is covered in yellow sand, while the river dries up.
On the weather board in front of the Accessory Shop, the desert weather rotation is represented by a cactus. The weather board in front of the Accessory Shop predicts the weather in-game, and consequently, the map change associated with this weather. The other types of weather include snow, depicted as a snowflake on the board, and sunny weather, depicted as a sun.
