The very most important thing to pay attention to in the Las Vegas Weather Report is WIND. Unfortunately, a lot of reports do not even mention the wind. If it is 62 degrees and sunny in December, it is fantastic and You can wear short sleeves but if there are Wind gust of 25 mph and it is cloudy 62 is freezing and You would need a heavy jacket and head cover. And since Las Vegas only gets 4 inches of rain per year, high winds brings dust and even trash flying all over so it is advised to stay inside until it calms down.
With more shows to choose from than any other City in the World, You might feel overwhelmed deciding on one. But if You narrow Your preference to a category, You can make Your decision much easier. If Your interest is in a Cirque du soleil show, why browse through the Comedy and Adult shows? If You want to see Britney or Mariah or JLo just browse the Concerts and headliners.
Don't like huge theaters and big crowds? Choose an afternoon Show or a half price show.
A Dinner and Show combo is a great value and saves time to do other things that day.
Example of extreme changes in average Temperatures is the Snow that came in December 2008. Not just flurries but thick heavy snow. It was a treat for Las Vegas since it is extremely rare. Most of the year you can bet on the weather being hot or mild. Remember that Hotel rates are lowest when the weather is considered extremely hot, but don't stay away just because the weather is hot, there are plenty of pools to cool off in and remember It's Dry Heat!
Tip You might want to pack a light jacket or sweater during the summer to wear in the Casinos, They keep them very cold.
