Winds will reach gusts of 90 km/h by Sunday morning.

A strong ridge of high pressure will remain south of BC as a deep low pressure centre crosses southern Yukon tonight. The resulting southwest flow over central BC will strengthen today and peak Sunday morning. Winds will ease later Sunday as the low moves eastward.

Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports to #BCStorm.
