The windy weather will continue in the Las Vegas Valley over the next few days, according to the National Weather Service.

Saturday saw gusts of 30 mph that will continue into the evening, while temperatures reached 89 during the day. The weather service’s station at the McCarran International Airport recorded the highest gust on Saturday at 33 mph.

“You could lose a garbage can today,” meteorologist Alex Boothe said Saturday morning.

Winds will decrease slightly Sunday with breezes around 20 mph, the weather service said. Those windy conditions will remain about the same through Tuesday.

Easter Sunday will see partly cloudy skies with a high of 80. There is a 30 percent chance of showers over the Spring Mountains and in the Red Rock Canyon area, but a low chance for precipitation in the valley for the first half of the week, the weather service said.

The valley will see sunny skies and no rain chances by Wednesday, which has a high of 89. Thursday has an expected high of 94.

Overnight lows through Tuesday night will be in the 60s, the weather service said.
