A strong Pacific frontal system will rapidly approach the B.C. coast today.
By this evening, strong southeast winds of 90 km/h gusting to 110 are expected to develop over exposed coastal sections of North Vancouver Island and the Central Coast outer sections.
A few hours later, those strong southeast winds of 90 km/h gusting to 110 will develop over Haida Gwaii.
By early Saturday morning winds will ease over North Vancouver Island and Haida Gwaii. However, over the Central Coast winds will shift to southwest and maintain 90 km/h gusting to 110. Winds will finally ease Saturday afternoon over the Central Coast.
Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage.
