Environment Canada has issued a Warning for Brantford and the County of Brant for high winds Today.
The warning posted to their website reads as follows:
Strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring.
Strong southwesterly winds gusting near 90 km/h are expected this afternoon and early this evening, with higher wind gusts possible in thunderstorms. These strong winds are associated with a cold front that will track over the area late this afternoon and early this evening.
Slightly weaker northwest winds gusting to 60 or 70 km/h are also expected this evening after the cold front passes. Winds will then diminish overnight.
Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur. Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage.
Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ONstorm@canada.ca or tweet reports using #ONStorm.
It is advised that you take a bit of care this afternoon and into the early evening and be aware that loose, light object might become a risk in the stronger gusts that are expected with this wind.
