    Default 2012 Weather Watch

    We're 29 days out.

    Accuweather states the average temps for weekend 1 are a high of 87, low of 60.

    Average temps for weekend 2 are a high of 89, low of 62.

    It's been warmer than normal out here in the desert, so I'm not hopeful we'll be at the average temps.

    Tell me when the Coachella heat wave spike has ever failed?

    I'm predicting and wanting low 90's high weekend 1 (and abundant sun).

    I was thinking about this yesterday. Maybe just a short but intense downpour during the "rain drops" section of Sit Down, Stand Up (which I hope they play).

    I'm fairly certain this actually happened at Pukkelpop 2006, but I may be wrong

    Field Day Festival 2003 in Giants Stadium - It rained all fucking day. The rain slowed and stopped during this song. It was absolutely religious.

    I have a feeling it's going to be much hotter this year than the past few Coachellas. We've had literally no winter here in Southern California. I hope I'm wrong and it's around 90 each day though.

    as long as it doesn't get as hot as it does on the playa I'll be content

    @TheMusicMan--I'm taking note of those predictions. Expect a cookie with your name on it if you're right

    Accuweather update:

    Wednesday 85/55
    Thursday 89/58 (and cloudy)
    Friday 88/56 (partly sunny)


    Myweatherforecast is a bit different:

    Wednesday 84/59
    Thursday 84/58
    Friday 88/60

    At the Depeche Mode Rose Bowl show in 88, rain fell *ONLY* during "Blasphemous Rumours".

    I have a feeling God likes DM better than Radiohead anyway.

    I got hit by a couple of small rain drops outside of the Mojave Tent watching Matt and Kim in 2010. True story.

    I saw Radiohead in Vancouver in 2008 and I swear to god it started raining while they were playing Paranoid Android. And I was all like "RAIN DOWN, RAIN DOWN. COME ON RAIN DOWN ON ME."

    It was probably the most epic concert experience of my life. It rained quite heavily for the rest of the concert though and I got kind of cold.

    Ya, it was POURING! Amazing show and moment. Still was cheering for Idioteque though instead of PA.... but the best Radiohead show Ive seen hands down.
    Upcoming Shows:
    The Knife: 4/9 @ Fox Theater
    Coachella: 4/11-13 @ Empire Polo Fields

    Festival vet but Eastern Canadian Coachella rookie here... does it ever rain during this festival? I'd be happy to leave my rain gear at home and it seems like that's the way to go.

    People you guys are complaining about mid 80s to low 90s? This would be the best weather that coachella has ever had aside from the 1st year ever!!! Im also a Coachella valley Local and the weather is just fine right now. Its suppose to be a little warm early next week but then cool down for Chella.. Usually pretty accurate.

    Only thing worse would be the people complaining about it being in the mid 79s to low 80s, aka perfect weather. I have been through enough outdoor festivals and desert enviroments to know how fast dehydration and sun burn can kill your buzz, a cloudy weekend in the low 80s would really be the best weekend ever for coachella.
