Batten down the hatches!

Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for the Greater Victoria area this afternoon.

According to the weather agency, a cold front will sweep through the south coast this afternoon bringing our first wind event of the season.

Northwest winds 40 km/h gusting up to 60 km/h can be expected and will be strongest near the water and along the frontal passage.

Conditions will ease tonight as the front exits the province.

Little to no precipitation accumulation is expected during this time.

We know this city. You should too. 👊

We uncover the best of the city and put it all in an email for you!
