Neveda is known for being extremely hot state, like many other states, depending on the location the weather can vary. Is Reno extremely hot like Las Vegas during the summer months?

extremely hot is a relative statement: for some, they might say yes, compared to Las Vegas, Laughlin or Phoenix it is cool. Actually it would be similar to Abq which has hot dry days and very comfortable nights.

Normal highs for July based on 1981-2010 normals is 92.5f. NOAA has tons of good climate data available.

Are you gonna be outside a lot?

I find that this doesn't matter much if you will be indoors 90% of the time.

Just today the US National Weather Service has posted that it's the first time since October that it has hit 80 degrees F in the area. The weather has been unusual so even with historical data, you can't be sure.

It makes a huge difference whether you are in the sun or not --- due to the low humidity, I'm fine in the shade during the hottest days in Reno. The nights are very pleasant and everything cools down.

During the day, it's about 5 degrees cooler during July and August and 10 degrees cooler most other months. Definitely more comfortable than Las Vegas in the summer. During the night, Reno is significantly cooler during the summer.

Daytime - No, Reno is not as hot as Las Vegas. Las Vegas is much hotter. I have lived in both places.

Nighttime - Reno is much cooler than Las Vegas after dark. In Las Vegas we ran the air conditioner even when the sun was down.

I've seen a lot of people complain about how cold it is here. Which it really never is. Montana is cold. Minnesota is cold. Reno is dreary in the spring. Periods of 60 degrees in the winter. Wind. Maybe like any high altitude location the fluctuation in temps, from night to day, etc. are more extreme than other places. Overall it's a pleasant climate, just very dry. My son gets nose bleeds and my skin is cracked all the time. I've been to Vegas only a few times, Reno is nowhere near that heat.

I'd get one of those handheld mister fans. Hang out under a shade tree and cool off. We have misters in our back patio for those really hot days with a slight breeze. It's not too hot here. I find the perfect temperature is 88-90 in the summer but it's going to be more than that.
