Two more rounds of strong winds are anticipated for both the North Coast and Haida Gwaii over the Christmas Eve/Christmas Day period, with Environment Canada expanding on its WIND WARNING of Friday earlier today.

The first wave of wind to come in the afternoon, followed by a pause, with the system resuming its momentum overnight. 

At times gusts could reach 120 km/h coming out of the Southeast.

That will be followed by a series of storms to follow through to Wednesday.

As we noted earlier today, that has also delivered Hurricane Force Winds for Hecate Strait, that resulting in the cancellation of BC Ferries sailings on Christmas Day between Prince Rupert and Haida Gwaii.

You may come across some snow if you have holiday travel inland with Terrace anticipating periods of Snow or Rain depending on the weather systems progress for Christmas Day.

Follow the Environment Canada website for updates on the weather as the holiday period moves forward.

As well follow Drive BC when it comes to any road conditions for points east of the Port Edward turnoff.
