Wind warning in effect for:
- Fraser Valley – west including Abbotsford
Strong gusty winds are expected this morning.
A rapidly deepening area of low pressure will pass north of Vancouver Island this morning while a fast moving cold front crosses the south coast.
In advance of the cold front, strong sustained southeasterly winds are expected for coastal areas in proximity to the Strait of Georgia and Haro Strait. As the front races across the area, widespread and powerful gusty southerly winds will occur. Gusts in excess of 90 km/h are possible.
Winds will ease considerably following the passage of the cold front but will remain gusty into this afternoon.
High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.
