Las Vegas Weather in August
- Average Temp in Las Vegas in August: high of 104° F, low of 66° F
- Rainfall: 0.45 inches
- Humidity: 22%
It’s scorching outdoors in Las Vegas in August, but they’re constantly pumping the AC indoors. We’re used to the heat as locals (people are surprised that we don’t bat an eye at 100-degree weather).
It isn’t the ideal time of year for visitors as far as the weather goes. If you visit, you’ll want to stick to mostly indoor activities or stay poolside. See what to pack below.
Unfortunately, it’s still a popular time to visit, especially for families, so don’t expect lower hotel rates.
