Southern Ontario is bracing for high winds today, while the northeast is being warned of stormy winter weather.

Environment Canada has issued wind warnings for essentially all of the province’s southern region.

Gusts of up to 90 kilometres per hour are expected to sweep in with a cold front this afternoon and into the evening, and speeds could reach 120 kilometres in some areas.

People are being warned of possible utility outages, damage to buildings and tossed objects.

In the province’s northeast, the weather agency has issued snowfall and winter storm warnings with up to 20 centimetres of snow expected in areas like Timmins and Sault Ste. Marie.

It says a mix of precipitation from freezing rain and ice pellets or snow is expected as a low pressure system moves northeast across the Great Lakes.
