Hey all, I'm Kevin, the guy who runs the Burning Man Weather Forecast Center on Facebook and Online. I am doing this without being paid by Burning Man because I was approached by a few people a week back asking for a better forecast system since weather is dangerous out there sometimes ... so I decided to help ... I have not burned, but my planned first burn is 2014. So I decided to go ahead and use my weather forecast knowledge to help you out.
On August 16th I put a forecast out for thunderstorms to hit the area between Monday and Thursday. This was considered a medium range forecast. On my page I got people posting links of like weather.com and other sources that said no rain would hit. This is usually wheat I get as the "new guy" ... Storms hit both Tuesday and Wednesday, with a chance today as well ... The forecast in the medium range ended out to be correct. So more people are joining the Facebook page to get complete updates for traveling and camping out on the playa ... Trust is building in the forecasts I provide.
This is a resource that is a must have so here are the links to where you'll find my stuff ...

Next year I hope to develop the page to even more people and for Burning Man.com to list my site instead of what they have now as what they have now is not accurate for medium range preparation or travel needs ...
Have a good one, and see ya later ,
