Extreme weather is more frequent in Vegas than Los Angeles.
To name a few...

1. Vegas is much windier than LA
2. Vegas is 20 degrees hotter than LA in summer
3. Vegas is 10-15 degrees colder than LA in winter
4. Much more thunderstorms and lightning here
5. Temperature drops below 32 degrees every winter
6. Every 5 years or so we get a real snow storm (we do see some flurries almost every year)

Of course I miss LA's weather very much as it is way more temperate and comfortable. Contradictorily, I also like the variety of weather phenomena in Las Vegas too.

Las Vegas can get flash floods during some of those summer thunderstorms. It's strange that Vegas gets more thunderstorms but people say it is much drier there. We have family friends from Nevada who always comment about how much more humid it seems to them in LA yet it rains more in Las Vegas, at least during summer. Once we were driving from Palm Springs to Indio when a huge thunderstorm swept in and we decided to turn back. Later that evening flash floods closed Highway 111 and cars were filled with mud up to their windows!
