Parts of northern Vancouver Island can expect wind gusts up to 100/km on Wednesday.

According to Environment Canada, an approaching frontal system will move into coastal B.C. tonight.

Winds from 80 km/h to 100 km/h are expected to develop this evening ahead of this front and then ease overnight.

For Haida Gwaii, strong winds will veer to the southwest overnight before diminishing on Thursday.

As always, the weather agency reminds residents in the area that high winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.

Environment Canada advises people to report severe weather events by sending an email to BCstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #BCStorm.
