    I think not. Especially when they get caught publishing a lie like this.

    The problem is this is a lie. And a HUGE lie at that. You see the average July temperature for Las Vegas is 107 degrees, and for August it is 103 degrees.

    When they publish such outright drivel as this, they can't be trusted with anything.

    You're right, we should probably ignore the official weather organization in favor of some Vegas tourism website.
