Wind Warning East Vancovuer Island

Issued at 10:38 AM PST February 15, 2014

Damaging winds up to 100 km/h expected today and this evening. This is a warning that potentially damaging winds are expected or occuring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions .. listen for updated statments.

A vigorous Pacific front with storm force southeast winds will sweep onto the BC coast today. Winds will shift to westerly gale force as the storm passes this evening. Gale force west winds may cause as much or more damage than higher speed southeast storm force winds. Winds from this storm will ease by early Sunday morning. A second vigorous Pacific front with strong winds presently being tracked is expected to hit the South Coast Sunday afternoon. As a result it is likely that the wind warnings will be continued into Sunday for the South Coast regions as this second storm is expected to generate very strong winds Sunday afternoon.
