Published October 15, 2017 at 1:44 am


Citizens spending time outside this Sunday (Oct. 15) should be prepared for some unusually strong weather.

Very strong gusts of wind (70 to 80 km/h) are expected to develop from Sunday afternoon into the evening after the passage of a sharp cold front, according to a recent alert from Environment Canada.

Occasional gusts to 90 km/h are also possible in some areas.

Residents are warned to be careful, as strong winds may cause tree damage and isolated power outages.

In addition, a flood outlook is in effect for Mississauga with approximately 15 to 25 mm of rain expected tonight and into Sunday evening — as well as temperatures dropping significantly tomorrow afternoon.

Winds are expected to slowly diminish Sunday night, EC says.

Stay safe and enjoy the rest of the weekend!
