  • Forecasting Your Palm Springs Vacation

    Palm Springs is famous for its alluring, sun-drenched desert scenery, with craggy mountains looming on the horizon and skinny palm trees punctuating the landscape. This also means that the mercury regularly tops out at over 100 degrees, though the low humidity helps to temper the extreme heat. Things cool down during winter months, but average temperatures still hover in the 70s and low 80s. It's smart to always carry extra water with you to help stay cool.
