The National Weather Service on Monday forecasted that windy weather coming to the Bay Area this week could be strong enough to topple trees and cause power outages across multiple cities. 

Powerful Winds

The weather service reportedly said the winds would have gusts of up to 45 to 55 mph at higher elevations. The system is expected to arrive late Tuesday and subside by Thursday morning. 

However, the weather service warned of potential windy weather next weekend. 

The National Weather Service advice residents with outdoor structures to secure them, especially people located in areas downwind of nearby mountains. Fire concerns remain low related to the wind.
