It was a wild weekend of winds across the west, and we will continue to see gusty conditions into the middle of the workweek.
High winds resulted in downed trees and power lines, and left many customers without power across the northwest region.
Wind Advisories and High Wind Warnings remain in place for parts of California, Oregon, Southeast, and across the North Central region the next couple of days.
A Wind Advisory
is issued when sustained winds are forecast to be 31 to 39 mph or gusts will range between 46 and 57 mph.
A High Wind Warning
means a hazardous high wind event is expected or occurring. Sustained wind speeds of at least 40 mph or gusts of 58 mph or more can lead to property damage.
Here are some safety tips to keep in mind if you are in an advisory, and how to prepare before the winds start to howl
