Considering your desert climate and the time of year, I would suspect that water deficit – drought stress is the biggest concern.
But if you think that you may be over-watering, then you may have to get out the shovel or trowel and get in there and dig down a little to see how wet the soil actually is. Or buy a soil moisture meter.
