Strong, gusty winds expected Tuesday and Wednesday.

An intense low pressure system is forecast to track through the eastern Prairies over the next few days. Winds gusts of up to and possibly exceeding 90 km/h are expected to develop over southwest Saskatchewan Tuesday afternoon.

Gusts of 90 km/h will expand east to affect the rest of southern Saskatchewan overnight Tuesday with the passage of the cold front. Strong winds will slowly weaken Wednesday afternoon.

Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur.
High winds may toss loose objects or cause tree branches to break.

Uncertainty still exists in the exact track and intensity of the low pressure system.

Wind warnings are likely to be issued for parts of Southern Saskatchewan.

Please continue to monitor alerts and forecasts issued by Environment Canada. To report severe weather, send an email to ec.storm.ec@canada.ca or tweet reports using #SKStorm.
