Wind warning now in effect for Metro Vancouver

Dec 14 2018, 4:28 pm

Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for Metro Vancouver today, with gusts as high as 90 km/h expected this evening.

The wind warning follows three consecutive days of the weather agency issuing a rainfall warning for the region. The rain lead to flooding in several areas of Metro Vancouver, including the Skytrain having to be bailed out, and Burnaby turning into a swimming pool for cars.

According to Environment Canada, “Another in a series of intense low-pressure systems will produce strong south or southeast winds today. The winds will shift abruptly to the southwest and increase to 70 km/h with gusts as high as 90 early this evening in the wake of this system. The winds will ease late this evening.”

Hold on to your hats today, Van — literally.
