LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A breeze sticks around the Southern Great Basin Sunday, keeping that Fire Weather Danger Warning in effect through Sunday evening. Something to keep in mind over this holiday weekend: no outdoor burning recommended. These winds have kicked up dust at times. Reduced visibility is still possible over these next few hours for Southern Nevada and the surrounding regions. As this dust continues to get lofted, air quality has slide into the unhealthy zone.

The Laughlin/Bullhead City areas will reach the 90s but if you’re looking for a cooler escape, highs will hover in the upper 50s to low 60s for the Spring Mountains. Temperatures will rebound again Tuesday. Highs will reach the triple digits Thursday and we’re in for another round of wind for the end of the week.
