The winds will be westerly 35 to 45 miles per hour, with gusts up to 75 mph.

“Strong wind gusts will bring down trees and power lines and result in scattered power outages,” the Weather Service said today. “Shallow rooted pines will be particularly vulnerable. Minor property damage is also possible, especially to roofs and siding. Travel in high profile vehicles will be very difficult at times.”
