Very strong winds expected to slowly ease this evening.

This is a warning that damaging winds are imminent or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..Listen for updated statements.

In the wake of an unseasonably strong low pressure system..Very strong southwesterly winds of 70 gusting to 100 km/h are expected this afternoon near the north shore of Lake Erie with winds slowly becoming more westerly and easing to 50 gusting to 80 km/h by evening. For the remainder of regions extending from Goderich across south Central Ontario into the Golden Horseshoe very strong westerly to northwesterly winds of 60 gusting to 90 km/h will also ease slowly to 40 gusting 60 km/h this evening.

Strong westerly winds 60 gusting to 90 km/h will develop for the Picton - Sandbanks Park region by early evening and last for 3 to 4 hours before weakening later this evening.

The winds are strong enough to cause minor damage to property and some trees..Especially those which are in full foliage. Motorists should also be prepared for the very strong and gusty winds which may make driving quite difficult..Especially in high profile vehicles.

The U of W weather station has been having serious issues since May 3. I can't access live weather data because it's down, but I'd estimate the winds earlier were probably in the range of 50-60 gusting to 80.
