Be Wary Of Strong, Gusting Winds Today


POSTED: 6:25 AM EDT Tuesday 04 April 2017
Special weather statement in effect for:

  • Niagara Falls – Welland – Southern Niagara Region

Strong southwesterly winds of 60 gusting to near 80 km/h are expected to develop this afternoon in the wake of a cold front sweeping across the Niagara Region. An occasional higher gust approaching 90 km/h, while not likely, is not completely out of the question.

These winds may be strong enough at times to cause minor damage to trees. Isolated power outages are also possible.

Motorists should also exercise caution as driving conditions may be difficult in the gusty winds.

The strong winds will slowly diminish this evening.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
