  1. If someone were to ask when is a great time to visit Las Vegas, I would answer late September, since the average daily high drops from around 37C to about 32C and the normal low drops from 23C to 18C. For me, the difference between 37 and 32 is significant, when the temperatures are above 35 I don't want to be out in the afternoon and rush to get things done in the morning, but when the temperature stays in the low 30s I will spread my activities out. Anyways, those are the norms. This year September was rough in Las Vegas, and they have hovered at or above 37C for the entire month. Luckily the mornings have cooled as the sun rises later, but it has been a disappointment overall. What typically happens when the cool weather is slow to arrive it arrives quickly, and as a result of clashing weather conditions we will soon get a lot of wind.

  2. Las Vegas, Nevada has been dry, even by Southwestern United States standards. We haven't had an inch of rain, total, for the past 18 months. Lake Mead is near a record low level (Lake Mead is fed by the mountains of Colorado, so our local drought isn't entirely related).
  3. Blizzards in the Colorado Rockies. This is great news, the water from melting snow in the Colorado Rockies eventually ends up in Lake Mead (the Lake created by the Boulder/Hoover Dam), and that provides a huge amount of the water needed for Southern California, Southern Nevada, and Arizona. The following is just a sample of the many snow warnings that were issued by the National Weather Service for multiple counties in Colorado: Summit County, Mosquito Range (Colorado) URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE DENVER CO 944 AM MDT THU OCT 26 2006 ...POWERFUL STORM SYSTEM POUNDING THE FRONT RANGE OF COLORADO... .HEAVY SNOW WAS FALLING THIS MORNING ACROSS THE FRONT RANGE MOUNTAINS AND FOOTHILLS...AND PORTIONS OF THE FRONT RANGE INTERSTATE 25 CORRIDOR.

  4. A little over a week ago I was swimming in Las Vegas, it was about 30C, and I could see snow on the peak of Mt Charleston, about 60 miles away.
