Wind Warning issued for North Coast, Cold temperatures on the way for inland regions

Warning Extended into Saturday night for North Coast.

The overnight period on the North Coast and points inland may be a rather windy affair for the next 24 hours, with Environment Canada issuing a Wind Warning for the region on Friday morning.

The Wind warning advises of increasing northeast outflow winds reaching up to 100 km/h tonight through mainland inlets. The wind will pick up during the overnight period and carry through into Saturday morning.

With the winds will come a strong Arctic ridge of high pressure and considerably colder temperatures, North Coast coastal lows will reach -8 over the next few nights.

While advisories are in place outlining that the temperatures could drop as low as to -25 in inland areas overnight and into Saturday, mainly in the Smithers area and points east.

You Can review the details of the Wind Warning here.
