Wind advisory for drivers, hikers in southern Nevada until 10 p.m. Monday


LAS VEGAS — The National Weather Service is warning of strong crosswinds affecting driving conditions in southern Nevada.

The wind advisory was issued early Monday in effect until 10 p.m. in Clark County, including Las Vegas, Mount Charleston and Red Rock Canyon.

Wind guests between 30 to 55 miles per hour are expected and isolated gusts as large as over 60 miles per hour are possible in wind-prone areas.

The strong crosswinds will make driving difficult and blowing dust could also lower visibility.

Southern Nye County and San Bernardino County in California will also be impacted, with Interstate 15 and several highways on alert.

The weather service is advising extra caution for drivers and hikers in the area. Items left outside could also be blown away or damaged.
