The strong outflow winds are expected to ease tonight.

“Damage to buildings, such as to roof shingles and windows, may occur,” Environment Canada warns. “Loose objects may be tossed by the wind and cause injury or damage.”

Environment Canada is asking people to be prepared for cooler temperatures this week across coastal areas in the province.

Arctic air will reach the coast by this evening. Temperatures will dip below the freezing mark for most coastal communities. Blustery outflow winds with the arctic air will result in cold wind chill values.

People working and spending time outside are reminded to dress warm and travellers are asked to add winter emergency kits to their vehicles, including a blanket and extra clothes.
