Environment Canada warns that strong wind gusts near 110 kilometres per hour that may cause damage or power outages are expected Sunday morning into Sunday night.
Damaging wind gusts may continue until Monday morning.
They say that an area of strong southwesterly winds will develop along a line from Windsor to Sarnia and the Bruce Peninsula. The winds will move rapidly eastward through the Sunday morning hours and cross over the Niagara Escarpment late in the morning. A few locations along the shores of Lake Huron, over the Niagara Escarpment and over the shorelines of Lake Erie may gust to 120 kilometres per hour at times late in the morning or in the afternoon.
In addition, Environment Canada says that flurries and local snow squalls are possible Sunday afternoon or evening following the passage of a cold front and hazardous travel conditions are possible in some locations Sunday night.
Local snowfall amounts from a few centimetres to as much as 5 cm are possible by Monday morning. Any fresh snow that falls will be whipped up by the very strong winds creating near whiteout conditions in blowing snow.
