4 College Junior

Weather: well the weather is practically the same everyday, sunny with little change so shouldn't affect the students that much.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather can be unpredictable during the spring and fall. One day, it could be sunny. The next, emergency transmissions about flash flood warnings appear on TV screens. Summer is incredibly hot, but that is expected in a desert. Winter is still chilly, but it is not unbearable.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: The weather in Vegas is great and mild most of the year. But we are famous for our scorching summers, so if you want to survive out here in the summer, drink lots of water and stay in doors.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: Ah, yes. The popular Las Vegas heat. In this crimson desert heat, it is safe to assume for all that it does take a lot to get used to and to live here. The weather is pretty sever in the summer, and in the winter the weather does get close to cold. Overall, the weather is fair at times, not many people can complain during the months of Fall, Winter, and Spring. Until Summer hits, then that's where everyone, including me, become irritated at times with the severe heat.

College Sophomore

Weather: Weather is such a bias thing. It is very hot and dry, so if you like that then this is the place for you. It does rain periodically, which can cause flash floods, but for the most part it is a great place!

Las Vegas has two types of weather: really hot and cold. There are just a few weeks of ultra-comfortable transitioning weather. Summer starts early and ends late here—it’s not unusual to be wearing shorts on Halloween. Temperatures can reach a scorching 120 degrees, so be prepared with sunscreen and lots of breathable clothing. Heat exhaustion is common, so you also have to drink plenty of water in the heat.

In winters past, Las Vegas has seen more and more snow, though it melts within a day or so and that degree of cold only comes in bursts. If you’re coming from harsh winters, welcome to Heaven, and be prepared to see locals enthusiastically taking pictures and puzzling over the correct application of snow chains. As far as clothes go, you’ll just need a winter coat and sweaters to layer.
