Nevada is known immediately for two things: its glittering casinos and for having one of the driest climates in the United States.
We kid you not when we tell you that if you are not up for genuinely sunny weather, where the sun literally beats down on the landscape all day up until evening, then you are in for a little surprise. Fortunately, if you are a tourist who wants to maximize your stay in this fair side of the US, the shoulder season between summer and winter is usually the best time to visit.
During this time, the weather becomes less dry and irritating to the skin and breathing, and this brings about a more comfortable environment for tourists who wish to explore Nevada a bit more, just before they head back to the casinos and hotels that this state is known greatly for.
The average daytime temperature at its highest would be 70°F. Visit Nevada between March and April and expect better weather conditions and a most pleasant experience while touring any city in the state. It is common for families and bands of friends to come here even before the summer months to enjoy pool parties and simply enjoy the nice weather.
If you are aiming to come here toward the end of the year, then the months of October to December are ideal. However, this is the peak of the tourist season in Nevada, and hotel deals are definitely more difficult to come by. The best strategy of course, would be to book your room as early as possible so you will have accommodations that won’t cost you too much when you fly to Nevada. Winters in Nevada are dry and surprisingly cold, too. In Las Vegas, the temperature will normally not get above 57°F and at night, temperatures can dip to as low as 30°F. Be sure to bring a few sweaters or coats when you visit near the beginning of the winter season.
Chances of rainfall is actually higher during the colder months of the year. The annual rainfall measurement for the state is just 7 mm. The deepest deposits of snow have been recorded to occur repeatedly in January of each year, and the months of June to September tend to have no snow.
In terms of humidity, December tends to be more humid than the rest of the year. The driest and perhaps most undesirable month would be June, where humidity tends to drop below 20%. It then begins to climb in July and the trend goes upward until the end of the year. If you have skin problems that are triggered by dry weather, it would be best to carry with you moisturizers and moisture-locking creams just in case.
General travel safety records indicate that it is safe to travel to the state, and there have been no previously released warnings or advisories to motorists this year.
