Up-to-Date JazzFest Weather
Rain won’t keep revelers from the Fairgrounds today, but pack a poncho if you're looking to stay dry. The chance of precipitation jumps to 70 percent by 4pm, and the forecast says the skies will stay open through Patti Smith. However, the temperature should hover around 74 degrees all day, so there’s no need for a jacket. Don’t wear fancy shoes, and white clothes are also not recommended.

Today in New Orleans 5.2.13
Jazz Fest starts up again today! If you’re in the mood for something a little less crowded, Kermit Ruffins is playing Armstrong Park, and the Botanical Gardens in City Park are hosting some Latin beats. On this day in 1964, the Dixie Cups’ “Going to the Chapel” entered the Billboard R&B chart. Now, more ways to kick off your second Jazz Fest weekend. Check back for after dark events.
