We start the week with the likelihood of strong gusty winds and thunderstorms for the Jersey Shore.

We spoke with our Chief Meteorologist Dan Zarrow and here's what he said to expect for our day today...

High Wind Warning...in effect this morning for all of Monmouth & Ocean Counties, wit the potential of wind gusts between 60 and 65mph at times, and could be even higher during thunderstorms,  which should be strongest this afternoon, with wind, rain, lightning, hail, and maybe even a tornado.

If you are home, you'll want to make sure to secure anything that could blow away or become a projectile during the day. The National Weather Service says possible impacts from the wind could be downed branches, trees and potentially power lines.

There is a chance therefore for widespread power outages throughout the area. The High Wind Warning will remain in effect until 7:00pm..
