Hold on to your toques, Squamish.
An Environment Canada wind warning is in effect for Howe Sound.
Winds, gusting to 90 kilometres per hour over southern portions of Howe Sound — including Gambier and Bowen Islands — will ease overnight Sunday.
These high winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.
A ridge of high-pressure gathering steam over the B.C. Interior is forcing arctic air out to the coast through mainland inlets and valleys, according to the Environment Canada alert.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada.
How does a wind qualify for an Environment Canada wind warning?
These warnings are issued when there is 70 km/h or higher of sustained wind and/or gusts to 90 km/h or more.
