May is the time of the year in Las Vegas where you start feeling the temperature rise and you are not sure if you are ready for summer to come so quickly. Remember, this is May heat and not middle of the summer warm temperatures so you'll be comfortable but never cool. Nighttime walks can sometimes require a sweater for those people who don't like the crisp desert air. For the most part part May weather is about as perfect as Las Vegas climate gets.
