    Many deserts form around 30 degrees latitude because this region is the subtropics. The subtropics experience high air pressure, which means clouds will not form, and because there are no clouds, there is no precipitation. Another reason you get deserts is because they are far inland and thus far from a body of water that can provide the humidity for clouds and rain.
