What is the temperature of sand?

Answer

The temperature of sand will demand on the climate that the sand is located in. Sand tends to be a very good insulator, as it stores, traps, and blocks temperature changes. Sand will hold the localized temperature for a period of time even after a temperature change. For instance, during a cold evening the sand will absorb and change to that low temperature. After sunrise the air temperature begins to rise rapidly, however the temperature of the sand will change more slowly.
1 Additional Answer
The temperature of sand varies from time of day to location in the world. Several things determine the temperature of sand; heat capacity, density, solar radiation emission and absorption, convective heat transfer and conductive heat transfer. When sand reaches 4,200 degrees F it will turn to glass.
