Lake wind advisory issued for Sunday

October 7, 2018

LAS VEGAS — A lake wind advisory has been issued for Sunday, Oct. 7, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. along the lower Colorado River valley and surrounding communities from Lake Havasu to Hoover Dam.

The Las Vegas office of the National Weather Service warns of gusty north winds behind an early Sunday cold front with sustained velocities in the mid 20s and gusts to 35 mph. The strongest winds are expected to be near Lake Mohave and Laughlin.

Strong winds over open waters render surfaces rough and hazardous and could produce waves large enough to capsize or swamp smaller craft.
