Coachella Valley Weather in May

Averages By Month

May Overview

In May it starts to get really hot in the Coachella Valley with daytime highs of 94°F. Days are long with 14 hours of daylight. Plenty of sunshine requires extra portions of sunscreen and the very dry air will make you thirsty- so make sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. At night it cools down a lot to lows of 66°F, even in May. Bringing a light jacket if you are planning some evenings out might be wise. As most of the year it is super dry with not a single day of rain to be expected.

In May the crowds visiting for the Coachella Valley Arts and Music Festival have left and you will be able to find some peace in the untouched nature of the Indian Canyons. A must for the active ones is the Desert Hike trail of Palm Canyon.

Best Time to Visit Coachella Valley

If you are looking for hot weather, a trip to the Coachella Valley is worth it at any time of the year. Summer time however, with highs of 107°F, might be even too hot for the most sun loving visitors!

You might find the winter months from November until March, or maybe April, the most pleasant with temperatures in the 70s and 80s F. Remember though that nights can be cool in the desert!

April, of course, is the best time to visit if you’re looking to see some of the superstar headliners at the Coachella Festival!
