I thought Las Vegas was hot until I went to Palm Springs this summer. On the way to L.A., I was able to catch a translator station for the Phoenix NPR station. They were describing the temperature as 97 F in Flagstaff and 110-115 F in Phoenix. After experiencing the heat in Palm Springs, my instincts told me not to venture further east on the 10 to Phoenix and to go back to L.A. or at least San Diego.

Any differing opinions?

Phoenix is the hottest of those three cities. However, El Centro, CA, Death Valley, and the towns along the lower Colorado River (Laughlin, Yuma, etc) are even hotter than Phoenix.

Palm Springs can beat the other two on many days. It's unbearable.

Palm Springs is the hottest of the 3:

Las Vegas 36N 2,000ft=
Norm highs 54-105, period 100+ mid June-mid Aug
Phoenix 33N 1,100ft=
Norm highs 65-108 period 100+ end of May-mid Sep
Palm Springs 34N Sea Level=
Norm highs 69-109 period 100+ late May-late Sep

Only way Phoenix is hotter than Palm Springs is
summer morning low temps

Palm springs is the hottest in summer. I've been to both Palm Springs and Vegas in the summer, and have lived in Phoenix for 16 summers(the polls just show you how most people who have opinions on here haven't been to the cities they speak of).

To be honest they are all hot though, and I really can't tell a huge difference.
The average in june is 104 and july is 106 for Phoenix. The average in june is 100 and july is 106 in Vegas. Again the difference between a 100 degree day in Vegas and a 104 degree day in Phoenix is not that drastic of a difference.

Palm Springs is the hottest (and swankiest).

Lol you're looking at a few degrees difference at most if at all on a lot of days. Weather in all three are pretty much identical. Though Yuma, AZ is one of the hottest cities in the country, moreso than any of the three.
