Averages for Las Vegas in August


August weather in Las Vegas is very similar to that experienced in July, with higher humidity and an increased chance of thunderstorms.

Throughout the month of August daytime temperatures will generally reach highs of around 40°C, that's about 103°F. At night the average minimum temperature drops down to around 25°C, that's 78°F.

In recent times the highest recorded temperature in August has been 46°C, that's 114°F, with the lowest recorded temperature 19°C, about 66°F.

Chances of rain in August are still fairly low, with average levels of rain expected at 11.4 mm over 4 days.

August sees on average 12 hours of sunshine a day.

The weather is best early in the mornings, in August, before the extreme heat that happens later in the day comes into effect. 

If you want to participate in any outdoor activities during this month, early in the morning is the best time to venture out. 

The casinos and Vegas strip malls can be used as air conditioned refuges from the outside heat levels.

As always, if you do go outside, be sure to drink plenty of water and keep yourself hydrated at all times.

The Main Events to attend in August in Vegas are:

Newport Pacific Jazz Festival

At the Dragon Ridge Country Club in Henderson, is the Newport Pacific Jazz Festival. Proceeds go to the Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program at Cedars-Sinai Hospital and the Las Vegas Philharmonic Orchestra. Supporting Sharon Osbourne and friends are such performers as Joani Sledge of Sister Sledge, Susan Anton, Rick Latham and the Groove Doctors and many others.

Def Con X Underground

The Alexis Park Hotel and Resort hosts a convention of the largest number of computer hackers in one place, where you can learn state of the art security techniques and how to defend yourself from those who know best, in the first week of August.
