Metro Vancouver to be hit with high winds up to 70 km/h all day

Sep 15 2021, 9:42 am

Hang on to your hats because it’s going to be a blustery day in Metro Vancouver.

In the early morning hours of Wednesday, September 15, Environment Canada issued another special weather statement¬†following Tuesday’s warning of high winds overnight.

This one concerns almost all of Metro Vancouver, including the City of Vancouver itself, the North shore, and as far as Maple Ridge, Langley, and Delta.

They expect strong winds in the region today, including gusts between 50 to 70 km per hour all day, lasting through the afternoon but easing up in the evening.

Environment Canada says a cold front crossed southern BC overnight. Strong westerly winds were created in the wake of the front early this morning.

They expect the strongest winds by the water near the Strait of Georgia. High winds can cause tree branches to break off and they can even toss around small objects.

Better batten down the hatches.
