CLIMATE AND CLOTHING
Las Vegas weather in July is always hot, sometimes humid, with a chance of thunderstorms. July days in Las Vegas
are as warm as you’ll see anywhere in the US. The daily highs in July can climb over 100°F. Although July is humid by
Las Vegas standards, you will be more comfortable in Las Vegas in July than in Florida. Meeting room temperatures
and individual comfort levels vary. Wear comfortable, loose clothing and bring a sweater or jacket with you to wear
during meeting sessions.
