Weather for April/May

We are coming from the UK for the last weekend of Jazz Fest but want to travel as lightly as possible, what can we expect from the weather?

temps can range in the 70s, maybe into the 80s.

since you will be outside, you should also come prepared for

the possibility of rain.

have fun!

I would actually plan on high 80's or even low 90's. We're usually getting pretty hot by Jazz Fest. And be sure to bring sun screen. There's not a lot of shade, so if your skin isn't accustomed to intense sun, you might get burned.

Bring shorts and a rain jacket (just in case). Also wear a hat and sunscreen at Jazzfest. You can get a nasty sunburn that time of year even on a cloudy day.

I recall my May Jazzfest weekend as full bore summer...low 90's by 11am...Possible thunder storms...indeed, Robert Cray's performance of John Hiatt's "Looks Like Rain" as the thunder and lightning rolled in was just sublime.
