Hot! Expect 105-110 and warmer during the day and low 80s at night.

It's cliche, but it's a dry heat.  It's like walking into an oven -- it's hot, but you're not dripping with sweat.

It every may well be cooler in August than what the temps have been over the past week and the next week. June has been having August temps. One difference is the humidity starts to go up a bit at the end of July,August, and September with better chances of storms and rain than June.  The electrical storms over the desert at the end of July (beginning of August) are spectacular at night. What a light show.

  Of course the temperature is pretty nice in the casinos.  Make sure you drink plenty of water.  Drinking alcohol dehydrates your body.  With the dry heat, you need lots of hydration.  So order a bottle of water with your beer.

I watched one from the "balcony" of the El Cortez pavillion rooms.  It was so pretty.

It's true at Vegas temperatures of 105-115°F, but the cliche doesn't really work in Laughlin/Bullhead City, where they grossly under-report the temperatures during the summer. Joey at NLG thinks they're trying not to scare away the tourists.

For example: They reported the high in Bullhead as 114°F today and listed a temperature of 108°F at noon. So what's wrong with this picture? Well, Joey posted a picture today on Fakebook of his outdoor thermometer taken at 8:30 this morning and it read a blistering 121°F. At EIGHT THIRTY in the MORNING! That's just too damned hot for human beings, dry or not.

One can't even argue that the placement of his thermometer gave a falsely high reading due to being in direct sunlight. Not at 8:30am.
