The National Weather Service on Friday morning said strong winds are expected for the Bay Area through Saturday morning.

There is a High Wind Warning in effect for the North Bay mountains through 4 p.m. Saturday, and there is a Wind Advisory in effect for the North Bay valleys, East Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains, the San Francisco Peninsula coast, downtown San Francisco and the shoreline of the San Francisco Bay.

The strongest winds were expected Friday evening into early Saturday morning, according to the National Weather Service.

North winds are expected to be around 15 to 30 mph, and gusts up to 50 to 90 mph are possible.

Higher terrain is expected to see the strongest winds, but valleys could still see strong winds as well.

Drivers of vehicles with higher profiles and with trailers are advised to use caution.

Unsecured objects not properly tied down could become loose, and tree limbs could be blown down, resulting in localized power outages, according to the National Weather Service.

Strong winds dropped a redwood tree onto two trucks in San Jose Friday and it hasn’t just been windy in the Bay Area, the Sierra is also seeing a lot of it. Chief Meteorologist Jeff Ranieri reports.
