WESTFIELD, NJ — Fast winds could blow around unsecured objects, knock down tree limbs and cause power outages Monday afternoon into Tuesday morning, the National Weather Service said.

Northwest winds of 20 to 30 mph are anticipated to gust at up to 50 mph, the Weather Service said in an wind advisory in effect 4 p.m. Monday to 10 a.m. Tuesday.

With the ground soggy from rain and melting snow, the forecasters also warned of the potential for trees to become uprooted.

“Due to snow melt and recent rainfall some tree root systems may be somewhat compromised potentially leading to some uprooted trees,” the advisory said.

The advisory applies to parts of Union, Middlesex, Essex, Bergen and Passaic counties, among other regions.
