    Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival - Weekend 1 - Day 3 on April 15, 2018, in Indio, California.

    High wind warnings are posted for Southern California's mountains and deserts, and the blustery gusts are impacting people with plans to arrive early for the second weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival.

    The festival announced on Twitter that for safety the opening of campgrounds has been pushed back from Thursday to 3 a.m. Friday.

    That's one hour after a high wind warning is expected to expire.

    Forecasts call for west winds from 25 mph to 35 mph with gusts to 55 mph (40 kph to 56 kph). Isolated gusts could hit 65 mph (104 kph).
