Las Vegas Weather

Situated on the boundaries of the Mojave Desert and Great Basin in terms of precipitation, Las Vegas tends to have unpredictable weather. In a broad sense the weather in Las Vegas can be said to be over 100 in the summer months but that can vary also.

One of the principal reasons for the variability of Las Vegas weather is that it is influenced by different weather systems at difference times of the year. In the summer the weather is influence by monsoon systems that come out of the south. In normal years this brings lower temperatures and increased rainfall. At other times of the year Las Vegas weather can be influenced by the jet stream. This can bring rain, wind and colder temperatures. 

At other times the weather in Las Vegas is influenced by west-to-east flows from the Pacific Ocean. As Las Vegas is in the rain shadow of California's eastern mountains precipitation is not always certain.

These factors make it difficult for planning events and vacations in Las Vegas. One year the weather might be perfect for a golf tournament or NASCAR race. While the next year it could be snowing or stormy.
