Wind warning for Cornwall and SD&G

SD&G – Potentially damaging winds are expected to rake Cornwall and SD&G today.

Environment Canada issued a wind warning at 9:29 a.m. this morning (Saturday) calling for gusts up to 90 kilometers per hour as a strong cold front moves into the region.

The weather agency says the strongest gusts will only last about an hour as the front passes.

The wind should die down by early tonight.

“Gusty winds can damage soft shelters, tents and awnings at outdoor events. High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break. Utility outages may occur,” the agency said.

The temperature will drop from a high of 8 today to minus 7 tonight with a wind chill of minus 15. The high will only reach zero on Sunday but will feel like minus 14 in the morning.
