UPDATE: A dust advisory has been issued by Clark County's Department of Air Quality for Monday. Elevated levels of dust are expected with the windy conditions in Las Vegas.

Under windy conditions people with heart or lung disease, older adults, and children may feel better staying indoors as much as possible because they could be at greater risk from particulates, especially when they are physically active, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Consult your physician if you have a medical condition that makes you sensitive to air pollution.


It's about to get windy in Las Vegas. And, much cooler.

A wind advisory is currently in effect for Southern Nevada. The Las Vegas valley could see gusts up to 50 mph. 

In addition, the temperature will be dropping in the Las Vegas valley. The high temperature for the day will be about 70 degrees.


The wind advisory will end at 8 p.m. and it won't be quite so windy on Tuesday. However, it will definitely be cooler with highs only in the mid 60s and lows in the mid 40s.

The temperatures will remain the 60s for the rest of the week and by Sunday, another system will bring cooler air and the wind.
