Las Vegas Weather
While it’s tempting to daydream about a serene poolside afternoon or a picture perfect tee time on a well kept course, it’s important to realize that not all months in Las Vegas are 78 and sunny. The fact is Las Vegas weather varies more from season to season and month to month than people usually expect. From scalding August afternoons to (believe it or not) the occasional snow dusting in December, it’s important to pack appropriately and know what to expect when booking a trip.
Summer in Las Vegas
Although it’s a desert climate, Las Vegas can still be roughly divided into four seasons. The famed Las Vegas heat is on in the summer months of June, July and August. Average temperatures easily top 100 degrees. While walking The Strip might be uncomfortable, take comfort in the fact that you booked a great room rate. To get an idea, check out this list of Las Vegas hotel promotion codes, organized by month, to see the savings popular hotels offer during the summer. These deals make June, July and August one of the best times for the budget conscious to visit The Strip.
Spring & Fall in Las Vegas
If the sound of 100+ degree weather is daunting, Spring and Fall are beautiful. The months immediately before and after the summer season are some of the best times to escape to The Strip, with warm, sunny weather typically hovering around the low 80s. The pools are a pleasure to be at, and the weather just can’t be beat for golf fanatics. As such, March – May and September – October are the busiest months for Sin City.
Winter in Las Vegas
Believe it or not, Las Vegas dips into a (relatively) cooler period during the winter months. While a tee time can still be found, pools are generally off the to-do list from November to February. Expect highs in the 50s and 60s. Crowds die down a little during these months, save for a couple of holiday weekends and popular conventions held in the early part of the new year. This makes for another time of the year when travelers can find great hotel deals.
Of course, the most important thing to keep in mind is that weather can be unpredictable, so don’t forget to check this page leading up to your trip to know what to expect during your stay.
