Wind warning in effect for Red Deer

Wind gusts could reach 100 kms/hr in some areas

Environment Canada has issued a wind warning for Red Deer and area.

An intense low pressure system will form in the vicinity of Grande Prairie early Wednesday morning and then track quickly southeastward to lie in southeastern Saskatchewan by 6 p.m. Wednesday evening. In the wake of the system very strong northerly winds 70 kms/hr gusting 100 kms/hr or more will develop and will follow the low on its journey southeastward. The winds will begin to surface in north Central Alberta late Wednesday morning and then exit the province near Cypress Hills late Wednesday evening.

In addition strong westerly winds will develop in southwestern Alberta Wednesday morning in advance of the low. Conditions in this area should improve by late afternoon as the winds diminish.
