Expected Weekend Highs in Indio: 100, 101, 99

Before you
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all. Your tax-deductible financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls. We believe when reliable local reporting is widely available, the entire community benefits. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

According to the meteorologists over at, the three-day forcast for Indio is Hot, Hotter, and Still Damn Hot: 100 degrees today, 101 tomorrow, and 99 Sunday.

So with two of the days predicted to hit triple-digits with winds of just 5 to 10 mph, may we make some recommendations:

- Bring tons of sunscreen
- Ladies: bikini tops; gentlemen: Speedos
- Floppy hats and parasols for all!
- Pick up some trash - if you pick up 10 empty water bottles on the field turn them in at one of two locations, you'll get a free bottle of water (value: $2).
- Pace yourself
- Use the misters, hang out in the cold tents, walk around barefoot
- If you must partake in illegal drugs, wait until nightfall so you dont get heatstroke running around like a damn fool in the sun.
- Likewise, take it easy on the booze until the heat breaks
