Last year on Thursday night it was pretty chilly. More than one winter coat was spotted that night. By Sunday morning it was pretty fucking hot. More than one bikini was spotted that day. Springtime weather in the desert is a roll of the dice. Pack a coat and some shorts with a stocking cap and flip flops.
two weeks from today is the last day for me, then it is a week long furlough for Coachella, or perhaps Coldchella.

Thunderstorms at Festivals are good and bad. I went to a festival here in Aus and it sat around 40 degrees Celsius (104F i think that is) the whole time and then on the last night there was a major storm right on top of us just as Midnight Juggernauts played. It was still super hot, Midnight Juggernauts playing, with rain coming down and lightning everywhere you looked. One of the most amazing experiences of my life. They had to cut the set halfway through though as the lightning got really wild which was the bad part.
T-Storms hitting the Tesla Coil while activated = win.
But seriously, living in Phoenix we see some wicked shit during the monsoon. While the odds of being struck are not great, they aren't remote either, especially in a large field. There's a reason golfers get struck probably more than anybody.
I'm part of the "hotter the better" crowd. Mid 90's highs/60 degree lows would be great. We know it will be hot and sunny we just won't know the temperatures for a while.
I agree... coming from MN... where it's actually been unseasonably warm the past 2-3 weeks... even in the high 60s some days. Could reach 70 today... it's been cold as fuck the past 4-5 months, and our summers are always too short anyway. So I'll always take really hot over really cold.

This was Sunday afternoon during Stars set at the main stage. Only thing that kept me bailing on that set. Damn it was hot before it got overcast midway through.
