Environment Canada says the BC North Coast should brace for some wet and windy conditions.
Forecasters have issued a wind warning for coastal sections of the North Coast as a storm approaches the region Wednesday night. Strong southeast winds of up to 100 km/h will develop over Haida Gwaii late Wednesday and then spread to the North and Central Coasts and Northern Vancouver Island early Thursday morning.
Damage to buildings, such as roof shingles and windows, may occur. High winds may also toss loose objects and cause tree branches to break.
The wind is expected to ease Thursday morning.
Environment Canada has also continued a special weather statement for inland sections of the North Coast as a strong storm, including wind and rain, is expected.
Environment Canada says a powerful low pressure system in the Gulf of Alaska will send an intense cold front barreling toward the BC coast Wednesday night.
The strongest wind is expected on the North and Central Coasts after midnight.
