What to expect from the Las Vegas weather in November
The one thing you can expect from the November weather in Las Vegas is cooler temperatures. Even that, though, can be hit and miss.
There are times in November when it is very hot and people on the Strip are walking around in shorts. However, most of the times it is jeans and t-shirt weather at best, and a hoodie or something is recommended too.
Whilst it is just generally very changeable, the very warm weather tends to just be an occasional days here and there.
The days are noticeably shorter in November too. It tends to get dark around 6pm or so, so be aware you may not really se seeing an awful lot of the sun anyway.

How likely is it to rain in Las Vegas in November?
Although the temperatures are cooler, there is not really any greater chance of rain in November than there is any other time of the year.
There are, on average, just two days that see rainfall during the month. On those days, though, there can be some heavy rain or thunderstorms.
Expect whatever rain does fall to pass quickly, though. You are not very likely at all to see whole days washed out by the weather.

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.
November can be one of the more humid months. The desert air isn’t quite as dry as it is during the summer. It’s never going to be uncomfortably humid, though.
What to pack for Las Vegas in November
A November vacation to Vegas can be a tough one when it comes to packing. Some months you would pack plenty of shorts and summer wear with some light layers just in case.
In November, I’d recommend the opposite. Pack light layers and chuck in a couple of pieces of summer wear just in case. You will definitely need a hoodie or a jacket for the evenings, too.
All but the heated pools are closed as well, so you may not need that swimwear.
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.
