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.

Environment Canada says the winds will diminish Friday evening as a high pressure ridge moves in.

The weather agency says that a few wind gusts approaching 90 km/h are also possible.

The conditions could make driving high-profile vehicles risky, damage trees and power lines, and cause unsecured light objects to blow away, the weather service said.

Enwin reports a large power outage for parts of Walkerville, the downtown core and south central area.

Brisk wind in the morning already was complicating matters for firefighters battling a vehicle fire about 10:20 the 500 block of Orchard Street in Toledo's South End.
