LAS VEGAS (AP) - The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory and red flag fire warning for southern Nevada and much of northwest Arizona.

Air quality officials in Las Vegas issued a dust advisory Monday, with weather forecasters predicting gusty winds until Tuesday in southern Nevada.

A cold front is expected to bring winds of up to 35 mph into the area until 9 p.m., with humidity dropping to single digits.

The Clark County Department of Air Quality in Las Vegas is advising residents and construction site operators to take precautions to prevent blowing dust.

Agency officials say high dust levels can create discomfort for children, the elderly and people with respiratory diseases such as bronchitis and asthma.
