Winds could begin gusting as high as 45 miles per hour just before daybreak Monday. The strongest winds are expected Monday afternoon and evening. Damaging winds could blow down trees and power lines. Numerous power outages are possible and travel could be difficult.

A high wind warning means a hazardous high wind event is expected or occurring with sustained winds at least 40 miles per hour or gusts of 58 miles per hour or more that can lead to property damage.
