Festival organizers have delayed opening on-site campgrounds for the second weekend of the Coachella music festival because of high winds. The Empire Polo Grounds typically opens to vehicle and tent campers one day prior to each festival weekend, but gusty winds are expected to wreak havoc on the Coachella Valley Thursday, heightening the risk of downed trees and power lines, as well as reducing visibility for drivers. "For everyone's safety camping will now OPEN on FRIDAY, April 20th at 3am", the tweet reads.

The National Weather Service issued a severe high wind warning beginning Thursday morning and lasting through early Friday.
