“Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring,” Environment Canada stated Wednesday morning. “High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.”

The wind warnings are in place for:

  • City of Vancouver Burnaby and New Westminster
  • North Shore including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
  • Southeast including Surrey and Langley
  • Southwest including Richmond and Delta

However, it states winds will ease by Thursday morning. The government weather agency issued a snowfall warning last night for all the same areas, with the addition of Coquitlam and Maple Ridge. That warning has since ended.

Those two suburbs, however, may still see up to 20 cm of snow for Wednesday.

Vancouver’s first snowfall of 2020 took place last week and it has wreaked havoc on the city since. Due to the snow, there have been several highway closures and transit cancellations and delays.

“Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions due to high winds,” stated Environment Canada.
