Heavy winds are on the way to the northern regions of Vancouver Island, according to Environment Canada.
The weather agency suggests that a strong frontal system is moving across the BC coast which will create strong southeasterly winds.
In an alert posted by Environment Canada on Thursday, it says that winds with speeds between 90 to 110 km/h have been occurring throughout the morning, but are expected to ease into the afternoon as the front moves inland.
“Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break,” reads a statement from the weather agency.
The wind warnings come less than a week after Vancouver Island experienced the first major snowstorm of this winter.
Last week, several areas on Vancouver Island also experienced an arctic outflow, which brought wind chills between -10 and -20 in certain regions as well.
