    Hello everyone,
    Second post here and first time Vegas go-er.

    I'm from Montreal, I'm used to hot and humid summer.
    I've been told Vegas is very hot in the summer, but dry.

    Is June / July too hot? Should I go later?

    I'm asking because for health reason, I can't stay in the heat too long or else I feel sick (Auto Immune disease)

    I've never experienced a dry heat like Vegas is. What can you tell me about it?

    Thank you.

    May through September the temp is about the same. Okay, May is a bit cooler, but still it is hot.

    The hottest time I can recall is during early June it was around 110+ the entire week. I have been to Vegas a lot during July and August but that week in June was hot. I might be used to the heat by then because I live in hot humid zone and July and August can be blistering here also.

    In Vegas, June and July will be hot. Could be 110 during the day and 90 at night. You might get lucky and it is only in the 90s during the day. It has happened to me.

    The casinos are kept cool enough that thin skinned women wear sweaters inside, but once they step outside it is back to blast furnace.

    Moral of the story: If you cannot handle the heat stay inside.

    Dry heat is like stickin' your head in the oven. I'm used to it out here and find the humidity of the mid-west and east far more "offensive", but 110+ is a big deal and as stated above it's doesn't cool off much at night with all the cement holding the heat in. That said, it's not hard to avoid the heat in Las Vegas by using a tram, cabs, etc. and cutting back the exploring.

    If I go in Oct. Isn't October considered the low season?

    We live in Florida and have been to Vegas in July for most of our trips and it is usually trip digits. We walk up/down the strip without too much trouble.

    I would rather walk up/down the strip in Vegas in the dry heat than walk to my mail box on a hot humid day in Florida.

    I have been to Vegas on every month of the year

    Chai Latte, I think it is best for you to visit Vegas when the weather is nice.

    Las Vegas is always FUN nomattter what month it is.

    I think late September will be nicer. October will be the fun month of Halloween celebrations the whole month. Vegas is still warm in October.

    You can also escape the cold weather in your city too.

    Boiling hot. In July especially, it will likely be 105° during the day. June probably 99°. I happen to like it that way. I like wearing shorts in the middle of the night. We can't do that here in Southern California even during the summer.

    For the AI disease, does it matter if it is dry heat or humid heat? Maybe the AI disease would not be effected as much by dry heat. I would ask your doctor.

    I went last year in July and I'll never make that mistake again! Anything above 90 is to hot for me.

    Same here in Connecticut. Was out in Vegas this past weekend and earlier this week, each day they had record heat for May, it was 100°+ but no humidity. I walked up and down the strip each day, the heat felt good actually.

    Got back to Connecticut on Tuesday to 67°F temps, and 55% humidity. I'll take that Vegas weather anyday!

    Personally, the hot dry weather doesn't bother me nearly as much as hot humid weather... I'll take 110 in Vegas over 90 in Boston or New York or Miami any day. ;) And although it's still hot at night, without the sun beating down it's actually quite pleasant to walk around.

    Chai, I don't think October is considered low season, mainly because the weather IS perfect, LOL!! Great time to visit, though!

    I've been to Vegas 5 or 6 times in mid-August for my birthday. I can only remember one trip that was almost unbearably hot (114 one day, IIRC); most were in the 100-105 range. One trip in early September was really nice, too.

    I once played golf in Chicago when it was 87 degrees and humid and less than a week later played in Vegas 110 degrees and hungover/dehydrated. The Vegas round was less painful, although I'd choose to do neither with your health condition.

    Like others said, if you are able to stay inside, especially if staying at one of the larger resort complexs where you never need to leave (Wynn/Encore, Venetian/Palazzo, maybe even Bellagio/Aria) you might survive.

    I never experienced dry heat so I don't know how I will react but the comparison given by people who experienced both humidity and dry heat are encouraging.

    I'm considering booking in July anyway just to experience the dry heat. I am traveling after all, and I want to experience it all :)

    Thank you everyone for your answers.

    I agree.

    I used to live in Fort Lauderdale, and currently live in Baltimore where today we've got 85 degrees with 65% humidity - and I'd really rather take a 100 degrees of dry heat than 80 with enough humidity to make your undies feel like the jungles of Phnom Penh the second you step outside.

    Incidentally, I'll also be going to Vegas in late July this year, but I'm not too worried about the heat.
