Wind Warning

Issued at 20:29 Wednesday 24 May 2017

Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring.

An intense low pressure system continues to produce strong northerly winds, with gusts over 100 km/h, this evening. These strong winds will begin to gradually diminish later this evening.

In the Pincher Creek, Cardston, Lethbridge, Medicine Hat and Cypress Hills regions westerly winds continue with gusts up to 85 km/h. Winds here will switch to northerly this evening with strong gusts up to 100 km/h still possible. Winds will subside in these regions overnight.

Rain also continues to move across most of central and southern Alberta this evening. General rainfall amounts will be in the 20 to 30 mm range by Thursday morning with locally higher amounts possible due to embedded thunderstorms. Additionally, farther to the west along and near the Alberta foothills, rain became mixed with snow this afternoon. Over some of the higher terrain snowfall accumulations may approach up to 5 cm by Thursday morning. Precipitation will begin to taper off overnight.

Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.storm.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ABStorm.
