The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory and a freeze alert for portions of Southern Nevada. 

The wind advisory was issued for eastern Clark County, Colorado River Valley, and eastern San Bernardino County until Monday at 8 p.m.

North winds are expected to be 25-35 miles per hour and peaking Sunday evening with gusts up to 50 mph in those areas before calmer conditions return Monday night.

Gusty winds can take down unsecured objects, along with tree limbs and cause possible power outages, according to the NWS.

Drivers should be prepared for sudden crosswinds as well. Those traveling with high-profile vehicles should use extra caution when on the road.

The freeze warning has been issued for Lincoln, northern Nye and Mohave Counties. As temperatures in those counties are expected to be below freezing for the first time in several months overnight until Monday at 9 a.m.  

Residents were urged to protect sensitive plants, bring outdoor pets inside and to insulate pipes.
