Such a watch means that critical fire weather conditions are forecast to occur. Listen for later forecasts and possible red flag warnings.

Clark County smoke advisory

An air quality and smoke advisory has been issued by Clark County from Saturday through Tuesday for elevated levels of smoke related to local fireworks through the Independence Day holiday weekend.

These pollutants can also aggravate respiratory diseases such as bronchitis and asthma or heart disease. Consult your physician if you have a medical condition that makes you sensitive to air quality conditions. Under moderate or worse air quality conditions, it may be best for children, older adults and people with respiratory and heart disease to stay indoors.
