The National Weather Service has issued a severe weather alert because of the high winds slamming into the Bay Area on Monday.
San Franciso International Airport saw winds gusting up to 60 mph Sunday night and PG&E was reporting all sorts of power outages from San Francisco to the North Bay.
The winds caused downed power lines in La Honda and temporarily closed state Route 84 in San Mateo county. In the East Bay, high winds toppled trees, and crush a pickup truck in Pleasant Hill. Plants were ripped from pots in Pacheo outside a restaurant. And in San Jose, another tree fell down on a vehicle near Tully Road overnight.
Winds should stay about 50 mph throughout the day, and things should subside slightly by evening. Temperatures should reach a high of 65 degrees.
