A wind advisory is in place in the Las Vegas valley until 11 a.m. Monday. The warning also extends to Red Rock Canyon and the Spring Mountains.

Gusts in the morning could potentially reach 45 miles per hour in the valley and 55 miles per hour in higher elevations. Caution is advised for those traveling outside.

Several hundred power outages were reported due to the winds, according to NV Energy, but the issues have since been fixed as of 7 a.m.

Clark County officials also released a statement that the ramp connecting the 215 east beltway to the airport connector will be open to traffic 24/7 this week. High winds prevented construction crews from completing their work on the ramp. Road closures will resume on Friday at 9 p.m.
