An electrifying weather event (that struck a jet with lightning as it was leaving San Francisco Thursday night) is making a stopover in Southern California.

Some parts of the state will get the full wrath experience with lightning, hail, and gale-force winds on Friday, while others will see scattered showers and snow, according to the National Weather Service.

In Indio, where tens of thousands are gathering for the first of two weekends of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, the temperature is expected to get low, and blow, thanks to some wind accompaniment.

Happy Friday the 13th, rockers.
