Incoming thunderstorms to Las Vegas is forcing air traffic patterns to change, which could delay flights by up to an hour, according to aviation officials Friday.
A spokesperson with McCarran Airport said the changes by the Federal Aviation Administration will force delays of 45 minutes to an hour on Friday's scheduled flights.
FOX5 Meteorologist Ted Pretty said a chance of showers and thunderstorms was expected for Friday afternoon and into the evening. Pretty said the storms are expected to begin in the mountains west of the Las Vegas Valley before drifting over the city.
There was no word on how long the delays will last on Friday.
