Winds will remain strong overnight gusting to 29 mph before a Friday morning low near 67.

Friday winds could reach 30 mph while the mercury is expected to reach around 96 at Harry Reid International Airport.

An approaching cold front will begin to cool the valley on Saturday when a high of 93 is forecast.
