Fans from all over the country are preparing to descend on Indio, CA this week for the wildly popular Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. But if weather predictions hold true, this weekend's festivities could face unseasonably cool temperatures and even rain for the first time in the event’s history.
With Radiohead, the Black Keys and Dr. Dre with Snoop Dogg (and special guests Eminem and Wiz Khalifa, according to persistent rumors) set to headline the three-day festival, a glance at Weather.com calls for highs of 70 on Friday with a 30 percent chance of rain, which could be as much as one-tenth of an inch, according to Mike Pigott, senior meteorologist for AccuWeather.com.
“That's pretty good for you guys,” he said in the Desert Sun. “It's definitely going to be more than a ground-wetting.”
