A Red Flag Warning has been issued for Southern Nevada this weekend. Strong wind and dry conditions will lead to heightened fire danger.

For the weekend, Saturday will be the warmer day with a forecast high of 93°. Wind will be a bit stronger with gusts in the 30-40 mph range. A cold storm passing through Northern Nevada will kick up even stronger wind on Sunday for Mother’s Day. Wind gusts in the 50-60 mph are possible with high temperatures falling back into the mid 80s. Blowing dust and isolated wind damage will be possible on Sunday.

We’ll be cooler early next week with highs in the mid 70s Monday through Thursday. It will remain windy on Monday with gusts up to 40 mph. We’ll keep it breezy through Thursday with gusts hovering around 30 mph. Clouds will be in and out with the slight chance of a few showers later Wednesday and Thursday. At this point, any rain looks isolated.
