Wind Warning in effect for North Coast

The weather systems are lining up off the Coast of British Columbia

A Pacific frontal system currently crossing over Haida Gwaii is going to bring Strong winds to the North Coast through the day, with the possibility of gusts from 90 to 110 kilometres anticipated.

The weather system is expected to slide southward towards the evening sending the strong winds to Central coast communities as it charts its course.

While the winds will diminish later in the day, the late November storm will bring Rain to the Prince Rupert area starting this evening and continuing through the weekend, with Environment Canada also noting that there is the possibility of Snow for the North Coast for Saturday night and Sunday.

You can access weather updates from the Environment Canada website here.

The ongoing weather off of Haida Gwaii has resulted in a Service Disruption for BC Ferries, as we outlined last evening, BC Ferries had delayed its departure from Skidegate to Prince Rupert, with the Northern Expedition still holding in port with an anticipated departure time now scheduled for 1-PM tonight, weather permitting.

For those with travel plans to Haida Gwaii, updates to the schedule can be found here.
