Wind WarningIssued at 04:41 Wednesday 18 October 2017
Very strong wind gusts that may cause damage are expected or occurring.
A very intense low pressure system has moved off to northern Manitoba and continues to track rapidly eastward. However, winds remain severe across much of southern and central Saskatchewan in its wake, with continuing gusts to 90 or 100 km/h over much of the area early this morning. The severe gusts will continue through to daybreak or shortly after for the Yellowhead corridor and surrounding areas to the south, but will linger through the entire morning for east central regions of the province.
Winds across Saskatchewan will then rapidly diminish in the afternoon hours.
Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. 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.
