Environment Canada has issued more wind warnings for a large portion of Vancouver Island.
The weather agency is anticipating heavy winds to hit the Island late Monday night and carry into Tuesday.
In Greater Victoria, winds are expected to reach 70 km/h due to a strong Pacific low approaching the south coast.
“The highest winds are expected to be ahead of the associated cold front that will cross the inner south coast Tuesday morning to midday,” says Environment Canada.
The agency is expecting strong southeast winds to hit the west coast of Vancouver Island on Monday night, carrying speeds of between 70 and 100 km/h. Environment Canada says the winds along the west coast should ease off by Tuesday morning.
In the area of Courtenay, Campbell River, Nanoose Bay and Fanny Bay, winds are expected to reach between 60 and 80 km/h on Tuesday.
Environment Canada is cautioning that high winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.
