Las Vegas Weather - What to Wear in Las Vegas


Seasons in Las Vegas

Thanks to Las Vegas being located in the Mojave desert, Nevada, it experiences very little rain fall all year due to the arid climate. On average Las Vegas enjoys 292 days of sunshine each year, so it's a great city to visit to matter what month it is and you can make great deals on flights and accomodation during every season.

Spring in Las Vegas (March to May)

Spring is considered one of the best months to visit Las Vegas as the temperatures are cooler, but still with plenty of sunshine hours. Average temperatures for March start at low 20sC, reaching 28C by the end of April and 34C by the end of May. Many people plan their trips in April when the temperatures are yet to reach their highest for the season.

If you plan on doing many day trips out to the desert during your vacation to Las Vegas, like a tour of the Grand Canyon, or Hoover Dam; or a cruise on Lake Mead, this is a great month to go. And sightseeing on an open top bus when it's cooler is much more pleasant than later in the summer.

Summer in Las Vegas (June to August)

Because of the arid desert temperatures, the summers in Vegas are hot but also long, and you can experience an average of 13 hours of sunlight a day between June and August. You can expect temperatures to soar well into the 40s and with no respite from any humidity, caused by the dry desert air. Shops and casinos are well air conditioned so you can escape from the heat, and there are plenty of indoor activities and attractions to enjoy, too. If you are looking to budget, the summer months are considered low season so you will find travel and accomodation to be slightly cheaper during these months.

Winter in Las Vegas (December to February)

Las Vegas can get pretty cold in the winter with temperatures dropping between 3C to 7C on an average day, so compared to the hot summer months it's quite a contrast. If you are visiting during these months you will need to bring jeans and a jacket, and maybe an umbrella as this season experiences the most rainfall of the whole year.
