Gusts Of 70-90 KM/H Prompt Wind Warning For Metro Vancouver

winds

A wind warning has been issued for Tuesday in metro Vancouver, with winds traveling between 70 to 90 km/h forecast to hit the region.

Environment Canada has sent out an official warning that winds will triumph over the south coast for the majority of Tuesday, resulting from a low pressure system tracking into the B.C. Interior.

“Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions due to high winds.”

Thus far, the recent wild and wet weather has cancelled a number of ferry sailings this week, and has also forced a partial closure of the Stanley Park seawall between 3rd Beach and the Lions Gate Bridge. A massive storm is also in the forecast for later this month, and forcing Vancouver to create a wall of sandbags along Locarno Beach in the event of king tides.
