The National Weather Service in Las Vegas, NV, has issued an urgent weather advisory for Western Clark and Southern Nye County. Residents and visitors in these areas should take heed of two significant weather-related concerns – a Wind Advisory and a Freeze Warning – both of which will have an impact on the region in the coming days.

Wind Advisory: The Wind Advisory is set to remain in effect from 5 PM this afternoon until 11 PM PDT on Sunday, October 29, 2023. During this period, residents can expect north winds with speeds ranging from 15 to 25 mph and gusts of up to 45 mph. These gusty winds have the potential to blow around unsecured objects and may result in tree limbs being blown down. In some cases, power outages could occur. Therefore, it is advisable to exercise extra caution when driving, especially if operating a high-profile vehicle. Additionally, residents are urged to secure outdoor objects to prevent them from becoming projectiles in the strong winds.

Freeze Warning: The Freeze Warning will be in effect from 3 AM to 8 AM PDT on Monday, October 30, 2023. Sub-freezing temperatures, with lows as cold as 32 degrees Fahrenheit, are expected during this period. These frosty conditions pose a threat to crops, sensitive vegetation, and outdoor plumbing that is left unprotected. To mitigate the risk of freezing and potential damage, residents should take immediate steps to protect tender plants. Furthermore, outdoor water pipes should be wrapped, drained, or allowed to drip slowly. Those with in-ground sprinkler systems should drain them and cover above-ground pipes to safeguard against freezing.
