Effectiveness Of Thermal Cameras In Hot Enviroments

How well would a thermal camera work in a very warm enviroment (i.e. desert like)? I would think at night when things cool down there wouldn't be a problem but during the day as things heat up and the ambient temperature reaches / exceeds body temperature (and objects in the field of view heat up as well) the camera would become ineffective. Is my thinking correct?
