Wind Warning Issued for North Coast for Friday

Make sure your Christmas decorations are anchored down for the weekend, another Pacific front is making its approach to the North Coast and with its arrival Environment Canada has issued a Wind Warning for the North coast.

Daylight hours Friday will provide for Clouds and showers with winds no higher than 60 km/h in the morning, increasing to 80 km/h in the afternoon. Anticipated rainfall into the afternoon ins 10 mm.

Strong Southerly Winds of 80 to 100 km/h are expected to arrive Friday evening, affecting both the North and Central Coast regions. The winds are expected to ease by Saturday morning, giving way to gusty westerly winds.

Rain arrives with the weather system with a further 10 mm of precipitation anticipated through the evening into the early morning hours.

You can access further updates on the Wind Warning through the day from the Environment Canada website.

Update: We're not sure if the Environment  Canada dart board is malfunctioning, but once again, the anticipated high winds never quite made it as far north as Prince Rupert and environs, while windy at times overnight, the speed of the forecast never quite matched up to the actual conditions over Friday night.
