Wind WarningIssued at 5:24 p.m. EST Monday 24 November 2014
Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring. A deep low over northeastern Ontario will drag a sharp cold front east across Southern Ontario this evening bringing very strong and gusty southwesterly winds. Sustained wind speeds of 60 to 70 km/h with gusts of 90 to 100 km/h have already been reported north of Lake Erie and near western Lake Ontario. WInds are expected to strengthen early this evening north of eastern Lake Ontario. These winds will be strong enough to cause some tree damage, with power outages possible as a result. The strong and gusty winds will also result in difficult driving conditions, especially on highways exposed to strong cross winds. The winds will slowly diminish late tonight or Tuesday morning.Details
