Wind Warning Niagara Region High Winds Elsewhere Sunday March 10

The good news is any signs of Freezing Rain have passed, but there are high winds expected over the course of Sunday with gusts up to or exceeding 70 or 80 km/h which has led to the Special Weather Statements impacting many regions, others however have been placed under a Wind Warning; including Niagara, St. Catherines, Welland, Grimsby, Dunnville, Caledonia, Haldimand, Simcoe, Delhi, and Norfolk.

 

The Wind Warning reads as follows:

 

Strong winds that may cause minor damage are expected today.

Very strong southwest winds with occasional gusts to 90 km/h are expected to develop by this afternoon. These winds may be strong enough to produce minor tree damage and isolated power outages.

The winds should slowly diminish this evening.

Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.

Wind warnings are issued when there is a significant risk of damaging winds.

 

For other regions these Special Weather Statements are in effect:

 

Strong southwest winds today.

Southwest winds gusting to 70 or 80 km/h will develop this morning into this afternoon. The strongest winds are expected over the higher terrain of the Dundalk Highlands and along the shores of Lake Huron and eastern Lake Ontario.

These winds may be strong enough to produce minor tree damage and isolated power outages, especially in locations which receive the stronger wind gusts.

The wind will slowly diminish this evening.

 

There are some regions north of York Region where the statement is regarding snowfall instead of wind, but most of Southern Ontario is under the advisory about wind.
