Another wind storm is looming for the northern half of the Vancouver Island, the west coast of the island and Greater Victoria.

Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for west and north Vancouver Island, Greater Victoria and for east Vancouver Island, specific for Courtenay to Campbell River and Nanoose Bay to Fanny Bay.

Wind gusts of 110 kilometres per hour expected to develop over exposed coastal sections of north Vancouver Island.

B.C.’s central and north coasts and Haida Gwaii are also under the wind advisory.

Environment Canada says a strong Pacific frontal system is rapidly approaching the B.C. coast, and the stronger wind will be felt by early evening hours.

The weather office says the system should move through west Vancouver Island by late Friday night, and ease over the eastern regions overnight.

The north Island could still be in the path of the system by Saturday morning, with gusts not expected to ease until the afternoon.

The advisory warns loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage.
