Las Vegas's climate is mostly dry and arid, with desert conditions that see hotter days and cooler nights. Late spring sees high temperatures in the mid to high 70s (Fahrenheit) with lows in the mid-50s. In September highs are in the mid-90s with lows in the 70s. In October, temperatures still can see the mid-80s during the day but can drop down to the 50s while November highs are mid-60s and lows remain in the 50s. The city receives very little precipitation however packing warm layers is helpful for the nights and also because air conditioning inside buildings can be quite cool. Packing List
