Question November weather

So we have only visited Vegas over memorial day, labor day, and mid-October. How is the weather mid-November? Looks like we are making a 3 night stop on our way to the in-laws for Thanksgiving.

We normally go the first or second week of December for an annual week-long trip. Just like anywhere, you can expect the unexpected.

For early December, the temperature is "normally" in the 60's to low 70's. I believe that a lot of the resorts close some of their pools in October-ish. We normally run around in jeans with a zip-up sweatshirt (take off and tie around waist in the casinos).

So, I think I'd guess 60's or 70's for temperatures and then cooler at night.

Hope this helps.

VAN that does help, thank you
Are there wind issues at all? Our trip over memorial a few years back was our last at that time frame due to the nasty winds.

This past December we had a couple of days with high winds ... just readjusted our plans as one of those days we had been going to walk across the Hoover Dam bypass bridge.

We normally go for a full week trip ... it can be really nice, warm and sunny ... or it can be a bit nippy and windy/rainy ... usually a bit of both in the week-long time frame.

If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

I live in Vegas. Van is exactly right. November is overall mild and sunny in the 60's, but there are always a few days that are cool (low 50's) and very windy.

Thanks to you both, I appreciate the feedback .

Not on the same topic, but I'm having a hard time with my hotel choice. We typically stay GN as we enjoy our downtown nightlife. Currently we have the trop booked @ $33/nt. Since the pool probably won't be doable, I want a place with a good spa but doesn't break the bank. We have stayed at MGM a few times and I do like that spa, I just hate the resort fees (and I know, the trop has them too). I'm just in a quandary. I was also thinking of Mandalay bay or ballys.
Now you see what I mean-I'm all over the place.

I don't know anything about the spas; however, in the past have liked to stay at the MGM properties. The resort fee, however, is a KILLER!

In the past we have stayed at MGM, Luxor and Monte Carlo. Love MC for the location (connected by free tram to Bellagio, which is a favorite for us to play BJ on the machines) ... but this December, we are planning to stay at Bally's. It is also in a good location but the parking garage is a bit of a hassle compared to MC. We've stayed at Bally's twice before and the room was fine. Not as nice as the MGM properties but the price was right. I can get reasonably priced rooms, but when you add $20/day for the resort fee - it just kills the deal for me.

One of the main things about Bally's and the other Harrah resorts is that they don't have many (what we consider to be) good gaming options. All of the machines have crappy pay tables and/or it is hard to find low-limit, good rule BJ. I'd love to give them some business, but just can't find "anything" I want to play.

We currently are holding a four night (Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon) reservation at Bally's (note two nights are during the weekend) and the total with taxes will be $250. From there, we will move to South Point which is about 4 miles south of the airport. Really love the casino and during the rodeo (when we go) is cowboy central because of their equistrian center!! We actually do most of our gambling at this casino, but like to be able to walk about at night, so spend most of our nights on the strip (after putting the car away). We tend to get good comps at SP ... they comped several of our meals plus our two nights stay when we were there last December.

Based on my experience, if you are budget-minded and want to stay mid-strip, I'd recommend Bally's.
