Wind Warning for: St. Thomas – Aylmer – Eastern Elgin County

ISSUED BY ENVIRONMENT CANADA AT 4:56 A.M. EST MONDAY 24 NOVEMBER 2014

Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring. A deep low from Texas will drag a sharp arctic cold front east across Southern and Eastern Ontario this afternoon. The front’s arrival will be heralded by very strong and gusty southwesterly winds. Sustained wind speeds of 60 to 70 km/h with frequent gusts of 90 to 100 km/h are expected this afternoon and tonight. These winds will be strong enough to cause some tree damage, with a few power outages possible as a result. The strong and gusty winds will also result in difficult driving conditions, especially on highways exposed to strong cross winds. The winds will slowly diminish later tonight or Tuesday morning.

Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage. Be prepared to adjust your driving with changing road conditions due to high winds. Wind warnings are issued when there is a significant risk of damaging winds. Environment Canada meteorologists will update alerts as re quired, so stay tuned to your local media or Weatheradio. Email reports of severe weather to storm.ontario@ec.gc.ca or tweet with the hashtag #ONStorm.
