Strong southwesterly winds gusting to 90 km/h are expected today. The winds are being generated because of a Colorado Low that is moving through Ontario today bringing strong winds throughout most of northeastern and southern Ontario.
Environment Canada warns that utility outages may occur. Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage. High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.
Note: Wind warnings have also been issued for: Greater Sudbury And Vicinity, Espanola – Killarney, North Bay – West Nipissing, Marathon – Schreiber (ended at 11:19 a.m.), Sault Ste. Marie – St. Joseph Island, Chapleau – Missinaibi Lake, Elliot Lake – Ranger Lake, Manitoulin Island, and Blind River – Thessalon.
