8. Seasonality&Climate ___


Since most of the Las Vegas Valley is at an elevation over 2,000 feet, the winter months can be chillier than you might think, particularly in the evenings. Long pants, a sweater and/ or a jacket are recommended if visiting between late October and early April.
During spring and summer months, t-shirts, shorts and athletic shoes are a common sight in the hotels and casinos.

Las Vegas, with its arid climate, sees more than 300 days of sunshine per year, with an average annual rainfall of only 4.13 inches (10.5 cm) and an average humidity rate of 29 percent. During summer months, it is not unusual for humidity rates to consistently be under 10 percent.

When making travel arrangements, note Las Vegas will be busier than normal on these dates, so advance planning might be required in order to secure accommodations and event tickets. If a large convention is in town, accommodation prices may also be higher.
