Storm system expected to bring wind to Las Vegas Thursday

Windy conditions are ahead for the Las Vegas Valley before a slight warmup period this weekend, the National Weather Service said.

A storm system moving through Northern Nevada will bring high winds and blowing dust in some areas of the valley Thursday, meteorologist Barry Pierce said. The 25 to 35 mph winds will be paired with gusts up to 45 mph.

With the passing storm system, temperatures Thursday and Friday will be cooler, with highs near 80 degrees.

Winds from the storm system are forecast to die down by early Friday morning, the weather service said.

Weekend forecast highs are expected in the mid-to-upper 80s with mostly sunny skies.
