|Las Vegas Weather July 4-8. Data from Weather.com|
When temperatures hover around 100º it is very manageable for locals and tourists in Las Vegas. Clouds will fill the skies on Monday and Tuesday, which to Las Vegans is actually a treat. You can get tired of sun, sun, sun, sun, sun... LOL.
Evenings and nights should be spectacular with temps in the mid-80's.
Thursday, there is a 30% chance of isolated thunderstorms. When it rains in Las Vegas, it comes down quick and in spots. You never get a whole day of drizzle or steady rain. This forecast for rain is more a hint than an actual threat. We'll have to see how the forecast shapes up the closer we get to Thursday.
AWAY FROM THE STRIP
If you're looking for activities away from The Strip, this would be a great week to see Red Rock Canyon.
Red Rock Canyon, 12 miles west of Las Vegas following Charleston Blvd., is one of the premier rock climbing and hiking venues in the world. It is absolutely gorgeous. And the weather will be perfect for enjoying the park.
The park has a visitor's center that details the history of the area and its pre-historic roots. To see the park area, it is $5.00 per vehicle. Red Rock Canyon is viewed on a 13-mile, one-way loop. Posted speed limit is 15 MPH, but you may want to go slower. Lots of places to stop and take pictures.
