Strong winds from the west affected the entire San Francisco Bay Area Sunday and thunderstorms are in store on Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service in Monterey.

The Bay Area was expected to see wind gusts of 20 to 30 mph rising occasionally to as much as 40 mph in mountain regions Sunday night, the weather service reported.

The North Bay can expect thunderstorms starting on Monday, with the storms spreading throughout the Bay Area on Tuesday and then only in Monterey and San Benito counties on Wednesday.

The winds could cause small tree branches and debris to fall and lightning from thunderstorms will increase concerns about fire dangers.
