LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Las Vegas valley is under a high wind warning through Wednesday morning in which gusts of wind between 60 to 70 mph could down trees, snap power lines, and cause damage across the valley Tuesday evening.

Residents are advised to secure lawn furniture, trash cans, and other outdoor objects that could blow around.

The windy conditions are expected to start with gusts of 30 to 40 mph and then increase dramatically.

The high wind warning is in effect from 1 p.m. Tuesday until 10 a.m. Wednesday for south central and southern Nevada, southeast California, and portions of northwest Arizona.

The strongest gusts are expected to peak Tuesday night and will mostly impact the western side of the Las Vegas valley and higher terrain areas including the Spring Mountains and the Sheep range.

Drivers in high-profile vehicles could find travel difficult. Crosswinds and blowing dust will create visibility issues, especially on I-15, I-40, and U.S. Highway 93.

Following the strong winds, cooler temperatures along with a chance of rain, or snow mixed with rain could be experienced in some areas. The high temperatures for Wednesday through Friday are expected to be in the 50s with overnight lows dipping into the 30s.
