National Weather Service meteorologists issued a wind advisory due to the potential for winds of more than 30 mph and gusts of more than 50 mph.

The advisory — for Issaquah and the East Puget Sound lowlands — is in effect until 1 p.m. Monday.

Forecasters issue a wind advisory if the possibility exists for sustained winds of 30 to 39 mph and gusts of 45 to 57 mph.

The advisory comes as a strong front makes landfall Sunday night and early Monday.

Strong winds can topple trees and cause power outages.
