LAS VEGAS – The National Weather Service Las Vegas Office has issued a fire weather watch from Sunday, June 28 at 7 a.m. through Monday, June 30 at 2 a.m.
The NWS stated that Sunday and Monday will bring another opportunity for enhanced wildfire danger for southeastern California, southern Nevada and northwestern Arizona.
Southwest winds 20 to 30 mph with gusts of 30 to 45 mph are to be expected. Due to dry fuels, low relative humidity and strong winds, any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly. Outdoor activities including fireworks may provide added sources for ignition.
