It can get a little chilly at night, I would suggest a long sleeve shirt or light sweater. I usually bring a thermal long sleeve shirt and a pair of socks (I do the old guy cutting the grass thing, flip flops and socks) - my feet were really cold in 2003.

I was worried about that last year, but once the sun went down I thought the temp was perfect. I was in a skirt and tank top both days too, and I never once got the slightest bit chilled. Then again, by the time the sun went down I was warm and glowy from my wine/beer buzz.

I think if you're there most of the day, the cooler temps just feel good. If you show up right around sunset, that's when the cooler temp is probably gonna bother you. Last year we risked it and didn't bring in any warmer clothing with us, mainly cause we didn't want to have to lug around a sweatshirt all day in 100 degree heat. If all else fails just buy a hoodie from a vendor once you get cold.

Of course if you're camping it's different story...I imagine it gets pretty effing cold around 4 in the morning.

I would also recommend sunscreen on your scalp - I got the worst sunburn of my life!

YES, that is some damn good advice! I got a raging sunburn in a single line down the center of my head from wearing braids with no sunscreen. Yowzers.

The weather at night varies. Right now it's 75 in the day, but feels like 85 and is in the high 30's at night. There are times in May/June where you also get the desert effect. It's worth it too bring a long sleeve if you get cold easily, but I'd check the weather forecast for the week before packing. You add 10+ degree to the high and -5 degree to the low and you'll get an estimate on temperature.

i think with global warming it's going to be really hot this year. if it gets cold just go into one of the tents. it'll be hot anyways because of all the body heat. i remember i was so hot even at night last year

for the last 3 years i have dressed in shorts, sandals and t-shirt and never been cold at night. Bring $30 extra and if you actually get cold buy some merch.

It depends where you're coming from. What's considered chilly in late April in Indio is considered warm in late April in Bethesda, MD. It doesn't bother me.

Night time usually gets windy as all hell. I usually just wear a backpack and store my sweatshirt/hoodie in it during the day. That way you're good come night time.

I brought a backpack full of warm gear last year on the first day, and never put it on. If you are grooving enough, you will be perfectly warm at night. It's not worth it to carry aroung a backpack all day!

BRING WARM CLOTHS FOR THE NIGHT...JUST IN CASE!!!
The weather here can be unpredictable and can become rather chilly at night. Sure..it can reach over 100 degrees during the day...but at night it can drop to the 40s or 50s...which for us desert rats is cold.

Here's the average High/Low Temp history for the area.

http://www.wunderground.com/NORMS/DisplayNORMS.asp?AirportCode=KTRM&SafeCityName=Indio&StateCode=CA&Units=none&IATA=TRM

If past history is accurate...expect daytime temps around/over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

Expect nighttime temps to be around 40-50 degrees Fahrenheit.

I can second that, I'm from Brandon and I pretty much froze my balls off walking to my car this morning.
