The average temperature is 70 degrees - with the sun out, its wonderful by the pool. If you get a rare rainy day, of course, not, but the days are nice. The nights however can get really chilly (41) so do pack warm clothes for the evening. Grew up in LA and always looked forward to that last few miles before getting into Palm Springs as it is warmer than LA in December. Glorious sun - nice days (but colder nights.)
This is Dec. and this weekend the weather will be around 80 degrees again.
Last weekend when we were there, it got up to 84 degrees. Are you going soon? It's perfect for hanging out around the swimming pool.
The weather in Desert Hot Springs is wonderful in December. Go to http://www.visitdeserthotsprings.com to check out the hotels that are members of the Desert Hot Springs Hotel Association. Good luck.
I just returned from Miracle Springs Resort and Spa, near Palm Springs. I was there from December 4, until today, December 18. I recommend the place and will do an indepth report, later. There were a couple of days that were unusually cold and wet. However,the weather was great, most of the time. People did sunbathe, part of the time. The hot mineral waters were very therapeutic and, even when there was snow on the mountains, getting in and out of the water wasn't too bad. Because of the current unusual national cold weather, it'd be a good idea to check all weather reports, then call the hotel and ask whether shorts and Tee shirts are being worn. I needed a warm sweater when I left the hotel. Walking in the rain required more cover-up. Jeans and pullovers with shorts and tops should do it. Take a jacket or windbreaker, depending, as always, on the current weather and length of stay.
