Windy conditions are forecast to begin Monday afternoon for the South Coast. The winds will begin around noon and continue through to Monday night.
Wind gusts to 60 km/h may toss loose objects and cause drought-weakened tree branches to break. These may give rise to injuries, damage, or power outages.
“A cold front will sweep through the South Coast this afternoon bringing our first wind event of the season. Northwest winds 40 km/h gusting 60 can be expected and will be strongest near the water and along the frontal passage. Conditions will ease tonight as the front exits the province,” says the agency.
Little to no precipitation accumulation is expected during this time. To report severe weather, send an email to BCstorm@ec.gc.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
