The National Weather Service has issued a wind advisory through 7 p.m. tonight for much of the Willamette Valley, including Corvallis, Albany and Lebanon.

Sustained winds of 20 mph to 30 mph are expected today with gusts of 40 mph to 50 mph.

The winds will likely be strongest in the afternoon, according to the agency.

The National Weather Service also cautioned that strong winds may blow down limbs, trees and power lines, and scattered outages are possible.

Lacomb School was experiencing a power outage due to downed trees on Monday morning, according to a news release from the Lebanon Community Schools.

School remained in session and on time, however.

Conditions are supposed to remain breezy near Albany and Corvallis on Tuesday. Sustained winds are only forecast for about 15 mph with gusts of about 25 mph on Tuesday, however, according to the NWS. 

Rain, or at least a chance of rain, is forecast through the next week.
