  • Description:
    During the last two decades, the Las Vegas Valley has emerged as one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the nation. The population has expanded from about 400,000 in 1980 to an estimated 1.1 million in 1995. In addition, Las Vegas attracts more visitors annually than any other American city except Orlando, Florida. As a result, local forecasters continually field inquiries regarding the area's climate from a broad base of public interests. Yet to this date, no formal publication of the Las Vegas climate record has been made. Official weather observations have been recorded in Las Vegas since 1937, initially at Nellis Field in the northeast portion of the valley, then later at McCarran Field on the south end. This Technical Attachment (TA) represents an effort to assemble these data into a useful reference for National Weather Service personnel to use in responding to climate inquiries. It is also intended to be of some value and interest to the general public.
