Environment Canada issued a wind warning for the western part of southern Alberta early Sunday morning.
Strong winds will be gusting at speeds from 90 to 110 km/h throughout Sunday. The winds are being caused by an upper cold front swinging south through the province.
The regions impacted by the warning are:
- Okotoks - High River - Claresholm
- Crowsnest Pass - Pincher Creek - Waterton Lakes National Park, Cardston
- Fort Macleod - Magrath
- Lethbridge - Taber - Milk River
While winds will remain brisk throughout the afternoon, they are expected to taper off somewhat in the evening.
Residents can expect gusts of 80 to 90 km/h at that point.
Calgary is not included in the wind warning but is expected to see gusts around 40 to 60 km/h.
