Las Vegas in Feb or March?

We live in Baltimore, and want some warmth in the latter winter; debating if we should go in late Feb or early march. thoughts on the weather? Looks like it gets closer to the 70's in March. Thanks.

It's a transitional part of the year, although I'm sure it's warmer than Baltimore. It can be cold and windy in the winter in the desert. But your chances of sun are pretty decent in March.

We are from MN and almost anywhere is warmer at that time of year! lol With that being said, we did go in March and because the weather wasn't ideal I felt I got cheated and went back in April. The weather was perfect then!! My choice betweeen Feb & March would have to be March.

Depending on you exact dates, there isnt much difference between late feb or Early March, but if you are asking about say Feb 15 vs March 15 there can be a difference, but Feb 25 vs March 2nd is only a few days.

It's no good in Vegas in late March anyway because not only do you have the spring break crowd you have the March madness crowd. It's not a cheap time to go. The weather in March tends to be on the windy side and it can still be chilly. Some pools won't be open yet. Still will be warmer than February.

We were in Vegas last March - the second week - and we froze our behinds off! We are from Southern Colo. where it can easily get 20 below - but we tried twice to play golf and it was miserable. The first day we had a 2 hour frost delay - frost!!! The second day the wind blew like crazy and it sleeted on us - hopefully the end of March would be a little safer.

You never know...I have been there in March in the 90s...last January it was near 70 everyday.

March will be more crowded but more likely to be more pleasant.

For our Feb trip we're packing winter sweaters/jackets. It may not have the snow of MA but it will be chilly outside for sure. Thinks layers if you are doing any Strip walking with a few stops at casinos in between. The casinos will be warm to hot depending where you are sitting. Gloves are suggested. The same can be said for March.

Either month can be a hit or miss in terms of weather but from our experience it's best to be ready for the cold. And those winds can dry your skin due to painful wind burns. Chapstick for sure.

I remember it being extremely nice this past Jan when I was there for Shot Show. Easily mid 60's to low 70's.

Can it really be that bad? =)

Will be returning in Jan again.
