Environment Canada has issued a wind warning over parts of Metro Vancouver.

The bulletin has been issued for the following areas, calling for strong winds that “may cause damage”:

  • Metro Vancouver – central including the City of Vancouver Burnaby and New Westminster
  • Metro Vancouver – North Shore including West Vancouver and North Vancouver
  • Metro Vancouver – southeast including Surrey and Langley
  • Metro Vancouver – southwest including Richmond and Delta

“Very strong southeast winds of 70 km/h, gusting to 90 km/h are occurring across the Sunshine Coast and portions of East Vancouver Island near the Georgia Strait late this morning as a cold front sweeps across the area,” says the weather agency.

The gusts are expected to reach the Southern Gulf Islands, southern Howe Sound, and portions of Metro Vancouver near the water.

The wind is expected to subside in Metro Vancouver this afternoon as the cold front exits the area.
