Holiday Weather in Las Vegas
The great thing about winter in the Las Vegas valley is that it really never arrives. I've lived here since the early 1980s and can remember seeing snow about five times total. A few years ago it did snow enough to block the road to Boulder City, causing my friend to have to stay the night at my house in Las Vegas. Now, I'm not saying that you won't need a coat or anything, because when it gets windy, the temperature is pretty cool.
Normal temperatures in the winter are usually in the 40s at night and the 50s during the day. I usually keep the thermostat set in my house to around 72 or so, depending on the temperature outside (I live in an older house). My friend just bought a new home in Centennial Hills earlier this year and has his thermostat set to 68 for most of the day. It gets so warm in his house in his computer room that he will have the window open for most of the day. But that's the advantage of having a newer home with great insulation.
His home is typical of the newer homes in Las Vegas, built with great insulation and high efficiency heating units. However, if you are in an older home like mine, you'll need to turn the heat up a little to be comfortable in the winter months but you'll never have to worry about shoveling snow of your driveway to get to work.
Thanks for stopping by my Las Vegas blog.
