Just when Greater Victoria residents may have thought the stormy weather was behind them, Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for the region.
The weather agency said it expects southwesterly winds around 50 km/h, gusting to 70 km/h, in the majority of the region Friday. Near the Juan de Fuca Strait, things will be a little more severe, with 70 km/h winds gusting up to 90 km/h.
Environment Canada warned that high winds can toss loose objects around and cause tree branches to break.
The winds are forecast to subside by Friday afternoon.
