If you need a quick guide to the temperatures in Las Vegas we can tell you that January and February can get cold but not the cold you might expect if you are from the north. If you head to Las Vegas from Canada I'm sure you'll be laughing at a number of coats and scarfs as you wear a t-shirt. March and April are tricky as the temperatures start heating up and you get the feeling that pool season is in full swing. While it might be warm, we have seen some Spring Break parties that have been canceled because of rain and cold daytime temperatures. Not to worry because May June, July, August and September are guaranteed warm months. You can be sure you will not need a sweater and you can pack extra sun block. Once October and Halloween come around the temperatures drop and you can bet a Las Vegas winter will set in through November and December.

Weather is relative so if you are leaving minus 20 temperatures you'll feel like the seasons have changed when you step off the plane to 50-degree sunshine. However, in the middle of summer plenty will tell you that it is a dry heat but anyway you look at it you'll feel a little bit of discomfort.

So is it hot in Las Vegas?

Not if you are gambling, well, that is unless you have a hot shooter and the chips are flooding the felt.
