Posted at 7:26 AM, Apr 15, 2016

The winds are back in Las Vegas, just in time for the weekend.

A front is currently pushing its way into the valley and gusty winds are expected all day long with the strongest gusts between 2 and 6 p.m. Friday.

A wind advisory has been issued for all of Clark County until 5 p.m. Saturday. Las Vegas is expected to have 40 to 45 mph gusts with areas south of Vegas expecting gusts around 50 to 55 mph. The Clark County Department of Air Quality has issued an air quality advisory through Saturday afternoon.

In addition, Friday afternoon's temperatures will be the lowest for the entire seven day forecast. The temps are expected to be in the upper 60s and lower 70s. However, because of the wind, it will actually feel a few degrees lower.

Partly cloudy skies are expected for Friday, but the sun will be back by Saturday afternoon. In addition, temps will be back in the upper 70s on Saturday and Sunday and in the 80s by the beginning of the week.

By Wednesday, Las Vegas could hit 90 degrees.
