Part of southern Ontario is under a wind warning with gusts of up to 100 km/h expected.

Environment Canada issued the warning stretching from Windsor to the Hamilton and Niagara areas.

The weather agency is warning of strong southwesterly winds gusting to 90 or 100 km/h, developing Saturday afternoon and continuing into the evening before easing.

“There is also the risk of a brief thunderstorm late this afternoon, particularly over the Niagara peninsula. Isolated wind gusts greater than 100 km/h will be possible with any thunderstorm,” the weather agency said.

Environment Canada said that loose objects may be tossed, tree branches could break, and power outages could occur.
