"In the wake of an ice storm earlier this month, branches are particularly vulnerable to strong wind gusts. Winds today will top off between 15 to 25 mph with gusts as high as 40 mph. This extended period of strong winds could break weakened branches, leading to isolated power outages around the Miami Valley," said Storm Center 7 Meteorologist Jesse Maag.

Butler, Clinton, Greene, Montgomery, Preble, Warren and Wayne (IN) counties are under the advisory Monday until 3 p.m.
