Weather on the playa is often violent and unpredictable. Dust storms, high winds, freezing temperatures, rain -- Burning Man has seen each of these at various times. Make sure you have plenty of warm clothing: in 1999, longtime participants were caught off-guard by the bone-chilling cold, and spent several nights freezing their tails off. It's impossible to be overly prepared when it comes to the elements.
