Hold on to your winter hats, folks, it’s going to be a windy morning on Friday!
From Environment Canada, there is a wind warning in effect for Greater Victoria.
Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring.
A low pressure centre over the South Coast on Friday morning will move into the southern BC interior in the afternoon.
In the wake of the low, westerly winds of 70 km/h gusting to 90 will develop in Greater Victoria near Juan de Fuca Strait (that’s us, in or near Sooke). The winds will ease on Friday evening.
High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.
Wind warnings are issued when there is a significant risk of damaging winds.
