WEATHER | Wind warning issued for Niagara saying power outages are likely Tuesday afternoon

Niagara will be hit with some high winds tomorrow.

A wind warning has been issued with gusts reaching up to 90 km/h tomorrow as a strong low pressure system sweeps through the province tomorrow and Wednesday.

Peter Kimbell with Environment Canada says the strongest winds are expected Tuesday afternoon and evening.

Kimbell says rain will end tomorrow morning at around 10am, then winds will start picking up.

By noon winds will reach 60-70 km/hr, and by 1-3 pm they will gust up to 60-90 km/hr.

He says by the shore of Lake Erie some gusts will peak at 100 km/hr.

Kimbell says we can expect power outages tomorrow due to fallen tree branches.

He says drivers will also have a difficult time controlling their vehicles.

Windy conditions will continue into Wednesday.
