Meanwhile, Environment Canada has issued a thunderstorm warning, in addition to the wind warning, saying the incoming storm can be risky.
Both the wind warning and the advisories were scheduled to expire at 6 p.m. Friday.
The forecaster says strong winds that may cause damage are expected or occurring.
Gusty west winds will arrive in the wake of a cold front from midday through the afternoon.
The biggest risk was expected to come from the wind, which was expecting to gust to 100 km/h at times. The wind becomes northwest this afternoon.More news: Mahmoud Abbas elected head of the Palestine liberation Organization
