First year I went in '08, there was a torrential downpour, my tent leaked, all my clothes got wet, I was miserably cold and damp, had to wear the same clothes and sleep in my car. Somehow through all of that, I still had the most incredible experience ever (Kanye STILL sucks, thanks Robert Randolph for that chant!)!! Then the very next year there was absolutely NO rain and the water trucks made everything a mud pit. I think I'm hoping for something right in the middle.. maybe some afternoon sprinkles and clear skies at night!!
I really actually hope it DOESN'T rain at this bonaroo, sprinkle is fine but thunderstorms and downpour? No thank you, not in a tent. I'd rather not be a wet chica the entire weekend. I love rain, but I have always been able to handle dusty air a hell of a lot better than being soaked to the bone.
Be prepared for both. You'll probably get a mixture anyway.

This forecast officially looks great. Weather.com has a high on Friday of 78! I may have to pack a hoodie and long sleeves for the night shows. With the sun and humidity it will still be hot, but it looks like max actual temps of less than 88-90 are coming to fruition. The big x factor now will be rain. Hopefully just a light sprinkle or two.

Yea, all the sites have been so different when they were changing so drastically from day to day, now they are pretty much in agreement.. Lets hope they are getting dialed in now and this stuff today sticks!

We upgraded our gear this year to help beat the heat, between that and this forecast, it's looking sooo money.
So, one thing I noticed with the forecast so far is... north winds early on. If air is coming down from the north, it's more likely to be colder. If it is coming from the south, as is forecasted later Saturday and Sunday - then it's warmer as air gets pushed up from warmer climates and the humidity of the Gulf of Mexico.
As long as the Thurs/Fri/Sat stretch stay comfortable, I am a-ok.
