May and June are the driest months of the year. Temperatures climb rapidly with highs in the upper 80s in April, mid-90s in May, and triple digits by June. In May, the Palm Springs Cultural Center hosts the Arthur Lyons Film Noir Festival. June gives way to the Palm Springs Desert Resorts Restaurant Week.

From June through September, average highs top 100 degrees. October's highs are still in the 90s. The temperatures begin to fall into the upper 70s in November and high 60s in December.
