I’m pretty sure it has to do with specific heat. Because sand’s specific heat is less than dirt, the same amount of heat will raise the sand to a higher temperature. It probably also has to do with the minerals and nature of the substances.
It could be because sand is loose and easier to penetrate while dirt is more compacted leaving no spaces. Heat is able to penetrate the sand better.
