Watch out for high winds in Red Deer area

Warning issued by Environment Canada

Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for the Red Deer area that may cause damage.

Wind gusts of 70 to 90 km/h are expected to reach the region by mid-morning on Friday and continue into the afternoon.

Wind warnings are issued when there is a significant risk of damaging winds.

The strong winds combined with falling snow will create brief, poor visibility on area roadways through the morning.

Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage. Motorists should be prepared to adjust their driving with changing road conditions due to high winds.

Included in the warning are parts of Red Deer, Stettler, and Lacombe counties.
