It is forecasted that the winds will gust up to 80 km/hr this morning, but (thankfully) will start to diminish this afternoon.

There will also be a wind chill of -16°C this afternoon.
For those venturing out Friday night, there’s a 40% chance of flurries this evening and winds may gust up to 60 km/hr. And with that, the wind chill will feel close to -20°C.
