Wind advisory issued: 9 a.m. April 9 to 2 a.m. April 10

April 9, 2019

TRI-STATE — Boaters, drivers of high-profile vehicles and motorcyclists are urged to caution tomorrow as high winds are again expected to batter the Tri-state area.

The Las Vegas office of the National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory for 9 a.m. Tuesday, April 9 until 2 a.m. Wednesday, April 10. Sustained winds of 25 to 35 mph with gusts to 45 mph are expected along the Colorado River Valley from the Lake Mead National Recreation Area south through Lake Havasu.

Strong winds will create hazardous boating conditions on area lakes during the advisory period; creating very choppy waters and generating large waves which could capsize or swamp small craft.

Boaters in the advisory area are advised to use extreme caution when venturing onto lakes: avoid the open water and stay close to shore or in protected coves and inlets.

Motorists should be cautious of blustery cross winds and reduced vision caused by blowing dust.
