I don't know what you're talking about, weekend 1 is looking pretty fucking perfect according to the current Accuweather forecast. 90 on Friday, mid 80's Saturday/Sunday, I'm not sure what else you want from the weather.
Last year they almost shut down the festival during the sand storm. I don't think we will know the wind situation until Monday/Tuesday of next week - right now it is very windy and much cooler but it's supposed to warm up this weekend and hopefully the wind will die down.
you can tell there forecasting a small cold sweep from friday night to satuday. low 48, then only a high of 78 on sat. its going to be hot a couple days before this, then get hot again after few dats after saturday. At least its looking like the cold sweep wont be as bad as 2012 week 1.
