A wind warning is in effect for Greater Victoria.

Greater Victoria is under a wind warning as of Thursday afternoon.

According to Environment Canada, a low-pressure centre over B.C.’s south coast on Friday morning will move into the southern B.C. interior in the afternoon.

In the wake of the low, westerly winds of 70 km/h gusting to 90 are expected to develop in Greater Victoria near the Juan de Fuca Strait. The winds will ease on Friday evening.

High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break, Environment Canada says.

Wind warnings are issued when there is a significant risk of damaging winds.
