What to expect from the Las Vegas weather in June
I remember absolutely roasting in early June on my first trip to Vegas and yet ominously being told by a local that ‘this is nothing compared to what’s coming.’ My next trip was in late July, and I knew exactly what he was talking about.
The weather, as far as I was concerned, was absolutely ideal. The temperatures were high but the humidity was low, so it only ever really felt pleasant to me.
It can get hot when you are walking around. I tried to walk to the Las Vegas sign from Aria, and that was a bad idea. Well, it’s a bad idea in general, but especially in that heat.
You are, though, guaranteed incredible weather in June if you’re visiting Las Vegas.

How likely is it to rain in Las Vegas in June?
The answer to this one is simple: exceptionally unlikely.
There are, on average, two days during June that see rain in Vegas. Actually, on some of the hotter days the rain can come as something of a relief.
That rain can occasionally come in the form of spectacular thunderstorms, but generally it’s just light showers. They also pass quite quickly too, so it’s not like you’ll have whole days that are washed out.

Las Vegas is in the desert, so humidity is never really going to be a problem. For me personally, that is a big part of what makes the weather so good there.
It’s a very dry heat generally, and it’s very rare that the humidity climbs above 66% across the course of the whole year.
In June, it never gets anywhere near those levels. In fact the humidity peaks at around a third of them. That means the air is either going to dry (around 22%) or very dry (around 14%)
What to pack for Las Vegas in June
You can very confidently leave you hoodies and jackets at home if you are visiting Las Vegas in June. It’s a really great time to visit.
Pack your summer wear for the days and make sure you have short sleeves for the evening too.
June is getting into peak pool season too, so don’t forget your swimsuits either.
One of the issues that does often come up in the dry heat is dry skin or lips. That’s why it’s often recommended to pack a lip balm/chapstick. Don’t worry if you don’t though, almost every gift shop or convenience store have them to purchase.
