I am visiting April24-28 and I saw in another thread that April is "windy" season???
I have been to Vegas in in every month from April to November (haven't tried winter - yet) and it is ALWAYS windy, some days much more than others. There is a monsoon season from June to September but I have never heard of a "windy season". Because of the way Las Vegas is situated (It's in a valley after all) it is windy all year round.
We lived there for two years. If there is a day the wind isn't blowing, it's noticeable. Otherwise, there is wind everyday. But, jeez, nothing to fret over.
One April we were driving back from Vegas with a massive south/southwesterly blowing. My Ridgeline doesn't exactly get good mileage to start with but we could not get from Vegas to So Cal w/o filling up, it was that windy. Of course, it also meant earlier that day that most of us nearly reached a 400-yard hole at SouthShore! (Don't ask about drivers on the preceding par 3.)
As Joe notes, it's a desert, it's windy most of the time, but mostly not something about which to worry.
The Spring "squalls" that come and go fast can be surprisingly windy. For example, today (Monday) there's a wind advisory because of the storm system hitting adjacent states.
We have that here. Projected into the 30s today, and that's not gusts.
"Powerful winds caused havoc across Southern Nevada on Monday, leveling trees and power lines and causing delays at McCarran International Airport."
We go every April, some days its windy, no big deal
