Averages for Las Vegas in August

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.
