Here is ECs statement and a potential major wind storm for Sunday night and early Monday.

Current details:
Damaging winds are forecast for Sunday evening when gusts could approach 100 km/h.

This is a warning that potentially damaging winds are expected or occurring in these regions. Monitor weather conditions..listen for updated statements.

A strong early season cold front crossed the South Coast late this afternoon accompanied by heavy rain and strong winds. In its wake heavy showers and gusty winds will gradually ease later this evening.

A second storm is expected to impact the South Coast Sunday evening. The associated low pressure centre is forecast to make landfall along Central Vancouver Island in the evening. While there remains some uncertainty in the precise track, storms with this trajectory have resulted in significant wind damage in the past.

The current forecast indicates that strong southeast winds of 60 to 80 km/h ahead of the low will shift to damaging westerly winds with gusts approaching 100 km/h in its wake.

And here are the model forecasts that give cause for major concern, white areas are gusts of over 70knots or 130kph hitting Ucluelet, Tofino and Bakley Sound. EC predicts winds up to 90kph here. 100kph for East Vancouver Island and Vancouver.

Be careful out there. Be prepared for power outages and be safe on the roads.
